Overview

The White Company by Arthur Conan Doyle

“...[W]orth a hundred Sherlock Holmes stories.” That was how Arthur Conan Doyle characterized The White Company, the book he considered his best work. Set against the background of the Hundred Years War, an extended conflict between France and England, The White Company rivals the best works of historical romance. Not only is it richly textured with accurate historical detail, it features several memorable characters: Sir Nigel Loring and Alleyne, his squire, as well as Hordle John, a lovable rogue, and Allewyn, the master archer.

Although not as well-known as the Sherlock Holmes series, this may be one of Doyles best works. It really defines the genre of medival adventure romances. Not as difficult to read as the Mort d'Arthur and his settings and characters are better defined than Stevenson's the Black Arrow. I only wish he'd written more books of this type.

The creator of Sherlock Holmes penned this novel of Sir Nigel, an old diminutive knight who ventures out to battle the French. You'd be hard-pressed to find a pluckier, more noble character in all literature.
