The White Company is a motley group of English mercenaries, fighting under the leadership of Sir Nigel Loring. Bound by an unquestioning respect for social order, patriotism, and a lust for adventure, the company makes its way to France to fight in the local wars. Encountering pirate ships and other dramas during their crossing, they finally land at Bordeaux and become involved with the fighting at the siege of Chateau of Villefranch du Perigord and in the Spanish Pyrenees.

With assiduous attention to historical detail, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle paints a convincing picture of the chivalric life and manners of the 14th century. With a fresh, concise style, this is a robust and stirring tale of adventure with the spirit and humorous touch of a Chaucerian raconteur. Download and start listening now!

    " Conan Doyle hoped to be remembered for his historical fiction rather than his Sherlock Holmes stories. And his historical fiction is in fact superbly entertaining. "

    " AN excellent tale of high adventure during the Hundred Years' War. In the Scott mould, although without Scott's epic lift. Still, Doyle is a great storyteller with an eye for the sort of detail that brings this far-away era to vivid life. And it isn't all action, all the way, in between the big-ticket combat scenes we're treated to a panorama of vignettes of 14th-century life as our heroes travel from the English countryside to France and then Spain in search of battles to be fought. "

    " An archery crew's historical adventure... "

    " I had never heard of this - Conan Doyle lecture expecting to hear about Sherlock - and all the guy talked about was this book -- for good reason - well written, very fun adventure story. "
