Overview
Five tales of battle, intrigue, the sea and adventure from the Napoleonic era
Conan Doyle was justifiably famous for his great detective Sherlock Holmes. But in fact Doyle's first love was historical fiction, and he had a particular interest in and affinity with the age of Napoleon. This led him after the 'demise' of Holmes to create another character much closer to his heart-the impossibly brave, boastful and not very bright, French hussar-Brigadier Gerard. That character's full adventures-complete with all the original magazine illustrations-is available as a Leonaur edition. Fortunately for the many enthusiastic aficionados of Doyle and the Napoleonic Age his efforts in that period of history did not end with Gerard. Here are Doyle's other classic novelettes and stories of the epoch of empires-each one a gem-brought together in a single volume available in soft cover and hard cover for collectors to enjoy over again. Includes Uncle Bernac, The Great Shadow, A Foreign Office Romance, A Straggler of 1815, The 'Slapping Sal' and Doyle's essay on his own Napoleonic history library.
