Adventures of Gerard

Adventures of Gerard Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brigadier Gerard is an officer in Napoleon's army—recklessly brave, engagingly openhearted, and unshakable (if not a little absurd) in his devotion to the enigmatic emperor. Arthur Conan Doyle's wonderful stories about the brigadier are as funny as they are hair-raising, and the brigadier himself has long since found a place in the hearts of his admirers second only to that of Doyle's incomparable Sherlock Holmes. Gerard's comic adventures are sure to find new devotees among the ardent fans of such writers as Patrick O'Brian and George MacDonald Fraser.

The Adventures of Gerard contains eight exciting tales of the brigadier's exploits. They are "How Brigadier Gerard Lost His Ear," "How the Brigadier Captured Saragossa," "How the Brigadier Slew the Fox," "How the Brigadier Saved the Army," "How the Brigadier Triumphed in England," "How the Brigadier Rode to Minsk," "How the Brigadier Bore Himself to Waterloo," and "The Last Adventure of the Brigadier."

Synopsis:

Napoleon's presumptuous but unsung hero, the Brigadier Gerard, faces certain death at every turn while outwitting the enemies of France. Duels, espionage, and narrow escapes are all in a day's work for the faithful Gerard.

About the Author
