Conan Doyle, Sir Arthur: The Adventures Of Gerard. v1, 25 Sept 2008
This is a collection of 8 stories originally published as a book in 1903.
From Conan Doyle's official website for his estate, I have this quote:
"The young and dashing Brigadier Etienne Gerard of the Hussars of Conflans, "gay riding, plume tossing, debonair, the darling of the ladies," is by far the most entertaining character created by Arthur Conan Doyle. Napoleon, Emperor of France is quoted as saying of him " if he has the thickest head he also has the stoutest heart in my army." In other words this impeccably dressed young Hussar is both a figure of fun and a soldier of great courage.
"Napoleon sends him on horrendously dangerous missions of "disinformation," certain that his devoted Brigadier will be made prisoner and surrender the documents he was entrusted with. Lo and behold, Gerard is so brave and so lucky, that he beats all the odds. During his adventures, he is often helped by smitten maidens who succumb to his charm."
I hope you enjoy it.
