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. With assiduous attention to historical detail, 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.

    " This is an impressive read. Nothing like the Sherlock Holmes stories. I highly recommned it. A modern book that parallels this story is Agincourt by Bernard Cornwell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesa | 11/22/2010

    " This was the first non-Holmes book by Doyle I ever read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Doyle is a master story teller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 10/5/2010

    " It started slow, but as I got into it, quite enjoyable and the last chapters quite moved along. I ended up enjoying very much "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/2/2010

    " Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is known for Sherlock Holmes, but truly this must be his masterpiece. We are immersed in medieval life, and it is written in a style that fits the time period as well. Very different from the stories of Sherlock. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 7/2/2010

    " I actually didn't read this book, but listened to it as an audio book. It was really well read with great voices and the characters were at times really funny. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Palmyrah | 6/11/2010

    " I suppose I should have read this as a boy, or not at all, but I have a weakness for bracing, politically incorrect boys' books from the past. Sadly, this one proved both unconvincing and enervatingly slow-moving, and I abandoned it after twenty pages or so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin | 5/30/2010

    " Imagine Arthur Conan Doyle writing a Ye Merry Olde England version of THE THREE MUSKETEERS. Fun, entertaining, and occasionally silly ("Forsooth! By the twang of string!") but worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steffanie | 3/1/2010

    " A challenging read but well worth the trouble. Conan Doyle never fails to capture humanity at its best and most cleverly comical.

    Thanks to my Dad for the recommendation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shalini | 2/8/2010

    " One of my all time favourite books. This isn't as famous as the Sherlock Holmes series but it's just as engaging, witty and exciting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 1/15/2010

    " Disappointing. What it lacked in action and excitement it failed to make up for in character development. Just kind of boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 12/14/2009

    " Wouldn't be a favorite...it didn't seem to have much plot, though it got better towards the end. Interesting mindset--the pursuit of honor above all else? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 9/24/2009

    " Great story and violence but not enough on the part of the main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ange | 7/15/2009

    " I've read it before, but it is certainly worth reading again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 6/30/2009

    " This Victorian romp through Medieval England is historically inaccurate, overly romanticized and splendid in every way. "

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.
