A series of comic short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes. These comic shorts were written in 1884-1885 and are set during the Napolenonic wars, 1807-1814. They first appeared in issues of the famous Strand magazine.

Our hero, Etienne Gerard, is a Hussar in the French army. His vanity is all encompassing; he is utterly convinced that he is the bravest soldier, most masterful swordsman and horseman throughout the whole of France, not to mention being a much in demand and gallant lover! Conan Doyle's humour is satirical, artful and instrinsic, and makes for an entertaining listen.

    " This is okay. Short of like Sharpe for the French side, but more tongue in cheek, and yet less fun all the same. "

    " Would never have expected Conan Doyle to write about the male dumb blonde stereotype. A few good laughs...but I far prefer Holmes. :-) "
