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.

Book excerpt: Having killed off Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle began a new series of tales on a very different theme. Brigadier Gerard is an officer in Napoleon's army—ecklessly brave, engagingly openhearted, and unshakable, if not a little absurd, in his devotion to the enigmatic Emperor. The Brigadier's wonderful comic adventures, long established in the affections of Conan Doyle's admirers as second only to those of the incomparable Holmes, are sure to find new devotees among the ardent fans of such writers as Patrick O'Brian and George MacDonald Fraser.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Gerard is a downright legend. At least in his own mind. Old and retired, the French brigadier muses over past adventures serving in the Napoleonic wars, and while he certainly should not be called a liar... uuh... he does have a tendency to put his best foot forward. ‘The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard’ (1896) is not a complicated book, yet it will make you reconsider the meaning of hubris and loyalty. Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle writes with sophisticated humour and this book is sure to pick you up if you are down. ‘The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard was turned into a movie in 1970 starring Peter McEnery. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a British writer, best known for his thrilling stories about the adventures of the detective Sherlock Holmes. He published four novels and more than 50 short stories starring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. The stories are seen as important milestones in the history of crime fiction.

In this new complete edition, which includes 55 original illustrations by W B Wollen, the aged Brigadier tells all his tales of Napoleonic gloire, quite unhindered by any sense of false modesty. He was, he tells us, "the finest horseman ... and the best swordsman in the entire Grande Armee", an outstandingly brave, hot-blooded hussar who was, of course, beloved by any woman fortunate to cast her eyes upon him. Nor was the Emperor unaware of Etienne Gerard's accomplishments, and sought him out for a variety of secret, or especially dangerous assignments. And so we are told of wild adventures from the Peninsular War, Waterloo, the retreat from Moscow, Gerard's imprisonment in England, and even an attempt to rescue Napoleon from St. Helena.

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.

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.Gerard tells the stories from the point of view of an old man now living in retirement in Paris. We discover that he was born in Gascony in the early 1780s (he is 25 in "How the Brigadier Captured Saragossa"). In "How the Brigadier Rode to Minsk" he attends a review of troops about to depart for the Crimea (1854-5), and this is the last identifiable date in his life, although "The Last Adventure of the Brigadier" has a still later setting, with Gerard about to return to his Gascon homeland. He first joins the 2nd Hussars - the Hussars of Chamberan - around 1799, serving as a lieutenant and junior captain. He first sees action at Marengo in Italy in 1800. He transfers to the 3rd Hussars of Conflans in 1807 as a senior captain
