Set in the middle of the fourteenth century, Sir Nigel is a swashbuckling story of the eponymous hero as he seeks his fortune and the hand of his lady-love in England and France in the early part of the Hundred Years War.

It is full of high romance and chivalry, battles and brutality, humour and sheer rumbustiousness as the impoverished Nigel Loring and his lascivious attendant Aylward seek their fortunes. Edward III, the Black Prince, Sir John Chandos - one of the original Knights of the Garter - all make their appearances in one of the favourite books from the creator of Sherlock Holmes.

    " Doyle sure knows how to have a good time. He teaches us a thing or two about how to have fun and to laugh in the face of death and destruction. "

    " Very good story about an English knight in the Hundred Year's War in France. An example of Conan Doyle writing something NOT related to Sherlock Holmes. "

    " First book I read on the cruise. This is story before the White Company. It's everything you want to read in a romance. "

    " An awesome read!! A must for anybody who only knows Conan Doyle from the Sherlock Holmes stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maurice Halton | 3/17/2011

    " Really a book for young boys, its well worth reading regardless of age and gender, simply to enjoy Conan Doyle's finely crafted narrative. Its about a young English squire in search of valour, glory and a knighthood in France during the hundred years war. "

    " Amusing adventure. After reading the Napoleonic Stories, however, I find it too easy to spot Conan Doyle subtly mocking his heroes. I'll have to reread the White Company and see if I find it as unalloyed an enjoyment as the first time around. "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
