Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's two novels of adventure in the fourteenth century, The White Company and Sir Nigel, seamlessly blend real history and imaginative fiction into spirited, fast-paced narratives that draw us in, as eager witnesses to the medieval soldier's life. Never out of print since their first publications in 1891 and 1906, they remain memorable for their accessible style, nonstop action, gentle humor, larger-than-life characters, and vibrant imagery.
