Arthur Conan Doyle's The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard (1896) is a series of stories about the life of a Hussar in the French Army during the Napoleonic Wars. Gerard is convinced that he is the bravest soldier, greatest swordsman, and most skilled horseman. Doyle satirizes the conventional English view of the French as well as the English manners and attitudes. This EasyRead Large Bold Edition has been optimized for readers with reduced vision who prefer a bold print that stands out and facilitates reading.
