The Complete Brigadier Gerard

18 Nov

The Complete Brigadier Gerard by: Arthur Conan Doyle

Brigadier GerardBecause this sentence is not an atypical one:

“Sometimes after a glass or two or of wine, I have found myself capable of thinking out surprising combinations, and have felt that if Napoleon had entrusted me with an army corps, things might have gone differently with him.”

Really, that’s the whole reason I recommend the book; if you got a kick out of that sentence, like I did, then you’ll enjoy the book.

It’s all about a bombastic Frenchman who served in Napoleon’s army. Each chapter centers around a daring exploit the great Etienne Gerard participated in, and it’s all told via reminiscence.

Vive l’Empereur!
