Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is no braver officer in Napoleon’s cavalry than étienne Gerard – especially in his own opinion. Whether kidnapped by gangs of brigands or outnumbered by enemy troops, the plucky little soldier is constantly gallant, chivalrous and ready to face any danger, even if he doesn’t always think before he acts. With great gusto Gerard recounts the swashbuckling exploits and adventures of his glittering military career – carrying out secret missions for Napoleon, eluding capture by the Duke of Wellington, making a daring break from an English prison, rescuing ladies in distress, duelling to the death against the dastardly Baron Straubenthal and even saving the day at the Battle of Waterloo.

This book was released on 2018-10-07 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Vive l'Empereur!" In the age of Napoleon Bonaparte, there is only one man who can truly be called the greatest swordsman, most accomplished horseman, bravest officer, and most gallant lover in all of France... and his name is Brigadier Etienne Gerard (should anyone possibly disagree with this assessment the Brigadier is more than happy to meet them with sabres at dawn by the old bridge). ** In the days after the presumed death of Mr. Sherlock Holmes at Reichenbach, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle began to release to the reading public the exploits and adventures of the French war hero Brigadier Gerard. Where Holmes was cold and analytical, Gerard is passionate and impetuous. Where Holmes sought to advance the science of deduction, Gerard seeks to carry the honour of France throughout the continent. Ranging from the canals of Venice to the moors of England, from the hills of Portugal to the frozen fields of Russia, Gerard fights and loves his way through the years. Along the way, Gerard repeatedly cheats death and meets some of the greatest individuals of the age, including the man who scrawled his name in red across the map of Europe... the Emperor Napoleon. All of this eventually leads Gerard to the final battle at Waterloo... and beyond. ** All seventeen of the original tales from The Strand Magazine are herein arranged in historic chronological order and fully annotated in this two-volume set (with A Mighty Shadow). This special edition also includes the details of how Brigadier Gerard came to tell his stories to Joseph Lacour, the early exploit of Joseph's uncle Alphonse in London (originally published as 'A Foreign Office Romance'), and the final days of Gerard's friend Gregory Brewster (originally published as 'A Straggler of '15'). Furthermore, this compilation includes four newly-unearthed, never-before published adventures... 'How the Brigadier Wrestled the Bear of Boulogne, ' 'How the Brigadier Faced the Firing Squad, ' 'How the Brigadier Duelled for the Despatch' and 'How the Brigadier Commanded the Emperor.' Together, these twenty-one adventures combine to tell the complete story of one of the most vivid men to ever live.

Book excerpt: You do very well, my friends, to treat me with some little reverence, for in honouring me you are honouring both France and yourselves. It is not merely an old, grey-moustached officer whom you see eating his omelette or draining his glass, but it is a fragment of history. In me you see one of the last of those wonderful men, the men who were veterans when they were yet boys, who learned to use a sword earlier than a razor, and who during a hundred battles had never once let the enemy see the colour of their knapsacks. For twenty years we were teaching Europe how to fight, and even when they had learned their lesson it was only the thermometer, and never the bayonet, which could break the Grand Army down. Berlin, Naples, Vienna, Madrid, Lisbon, Moscow-we stabled our horses in them all. Yes, my friends, I say again that you do well to send your children to me with flowers, for these ears have heard the trumpet calls of France, and these eyes have seen her standards in lands where they may never be seen again. Even now, when I doze in my arm-chair, I can see those great warriors stream before me-the green-jacketed chasseurs, the giant cuirassiers, Poniatowsky's lancers, the white-mantled dragoons, the nodding bearskins of the horse grenadiers. And then there comes the thick, low rattle of the drums, and through wreaths of dust and smoke I see the line of high bonnets, the row of brown faces, the swing and toss of the long, red plumes amid the sloping lines of steel.

This book was released on 2016-03-31 with total page 134 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Brigadier Gerard is the hero of a series of historical short stories by the British writer Arthur Conan Doyle. The hero, Etienne Gerard, is a Hussar officer in the French Army during the Napoleonic Wars. Gerard's most notable attribute is his vanity - he is utterly convinced that he is the bravest soldier, greatest swordsman, most accomplished horseman and most gallant lover in all France. Gerard is not entirely wrong, since he displays notable bravery on many occasions, but his self-satisfaction undercuts this quite often. Obsessed with honour and glory, he is always ready with a stirring speech or a gallant remark to a lady. Conan Doyle, in making his hero a vain, and often rather uncomprehending, Frenchman, was able to satirise both the stereotypical English view of the French and - by presenting them from Gerard's baffled point of view - English manners and attitudes.

This book was released on 2013-10-24 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: If ever a writer needed an introduction Arthur Conan Doyle would not be considered that man. After all, Sherlock Holmes is perhaps the foremost literary detective of any age. Add to this canon his stories of science fiction and his poems, his historical novels, his political campaigning, his efforts in establishing a Court Of Appeal and there is little room for anything else. Born in Arthur Conan Doyle was born on 22 May 1859 at 11 Picardy Place, Edinburgh, Scotland. From 1876 - 1881 he studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh following which he was employed as a doctor on the Greenland whaler Hope of Peterhead in 1880 and, after his graduation, as a ship's surgeon on the SS Mayumba during a voyage to the West African coast in 1881. Arriving in Portsmouth in June of that year with less than Đ10 (Đ700 today to his name, he set up a medical practice at 1 Bush Villas in Elm Grove, Southsea. The practice was initially not very successful. While waiting for patients, Conan Doyle again began writing stories and composed his first novel The Mystery of Cloomber. Although he continued to study and practice medicine his career was now firmly set as a writer. And thereafter great works continued to pour out of him. Here we one of those pieces for which his fame does not spread quite so far but which is an essential part of his work - 'The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard'.
