The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard is a series of comic short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle telling of the exploits of an uncomprehending French soldier during the Napoleonic Wars.

Originally published in The Strand magazine between December 1894 and September 1903 the stories satirise both the stereotypical English view of the French, and - by presenting them from Gerard's baffled point of view - English manners and attitudes.

The Stories:

  • How The Brigadier Came To The Castle Of Gloom
  • How The Brigadier Slew
  • The Brothers Of Ajaccio
  • How The Brigadier Held The King
  • How The King Held The Brigadier
  • How The Brigadier Took The Field Against The Marshal Millefleurs
  • How The Brigadier Played For A Kingdom
  • How The Brigadier Won His Medal (The Medal Of Brigadier Gerard)
  • How The Brigadier Was Tempted By The Devil

    Scottish-born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. (1859 - 1930) was a prolific writer best known for creating the detective Sherlock Holmes.

    About the Author
    Author Arthur Conan Doyle

    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.
