    PDF Arthur Conan Doyle Õ PDF The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUB ↠ The Õ posthd.pro complete ebok, brigadier pdf, gerard download, The Complete mobile, The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUBThis selection of short stories is Arthur Conan Doyle at his best I loved these as a teenager then read the book years later and as I look at this book now thanks to another Goodreads author asking a uestion about Sherlock Holmes I never cease to be amazed at the wonderful authors we have had and now continue to have in this worldThese short stories to uote the blurb Dumas's Four Musketeers all in one Don uixote inextricably entangled with Sancho Panza Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Brigadier Gerard stories surely constitute the finest series of historical short stories in literature mingling the comedy and the tragedy the pathos and the irony or in Napoleon's phrase the sublime and the ridiculous It is Napoleon and his Europe his dedicated followers and the awakened nationalisms of the peoples they enraged possessing our minds in savage realism and enrapturing romanceI couldn't have put that better myselfRegrettably I have to do a translation now

    PDF Arthur Conan Doyle Õ PDF The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUB ↠ The Õ posthd.pro complete ebok, brigadier pdf, gerard download, The Complete mobile, The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUBI'm a Sherlock Holmes fan not madly but I do enjoy reading Arthur Conan Doyle's preposterous detective So when this reissued complete collection of stories by Conan Doyle came into the office I snagged myself a copyIt's hilarious Gerard is completely oblivious to how ridiculous he is and truly believes that everyone has as high an opinion of himself as he does and if they think he's a joke whatever mission or adventure he's been sent on will soon change their minds HaIt strikes me that this fictional Gerard was a very lonely man who sat in a coffee shop and told his stories to anyone who'd listen I'm not

    PDF Arthur Conan Doyle Õ PDF The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUB ↠ The Õ posthd.pro complete ebok, brigadier pdf, gerard download, The Complete mobile, The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUBA brilliant series of stories about Brigadier Gerard a French cavalryman in the Napoleonic wars who by his own reckoning was the finest horseman in all six brigades of light cavalry and the best swordsman in the entire Grande Armee His vanity gives you an idea of Conan Doyle's view of French arrogance but he is nonetheless an extremely likeable hero The stories cover a wide range of settings from the Peninsular War the retreat from Moscow Gerard's imprisonment in England Waterloo and even an attempt to rescue Napoleon from St Helena Highly recommended

    PDF Arthur Conan Doyle Õ PDF The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUB ↠ The Õ posthd.pro complete ebok, brigadier pdf, gerard download, The Complete mobile, The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUBI have read uite a lot of Doyle over the years and this is by far his most fun work This book collects together all his Etienne Gerard short stories plus one random story at the start about a differently named character but in the same style so I guess a sort of prototype of Gerard The editor has added some historical context at the start of each story but I found this actually confused me far than just reading the stories alone so I skipped them on a second read The stories jump about in time and I found that this added to their charmThe set up is that you're sitting in a French café listening to an old man tell you tales of his youth as a mounted soldier in the Napoleonic wa

    PDF Arthur Conan Doyle Õ PDF The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUB ↠ The Õ posthd.pro complete ebok, brigadier pdf, gerard download, The Complete mobile, The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUBMove over Sherlock The Brigadier Gerard may be one of AC Doyle's most fully realized characters  Unlike Holmes who delightful as he is is two dimensional at best the Brigadier is a fully fleshed out man with all of the baggage that goes along with it  As he sits in his cafe surrounded by friends sipping wine spinning yarns about his old days in the Great Army Gerard has than a little in common with Mr Mulliner of the Angler's Rest  His stories range from laugh out loud comic to deeply tragic to the silently poignant but at the center of them all are the stirring adventures of the Brigadier all spurs and mustaches with never a thought beyond women and horses  He will win your admiration and your affections if you give him the chance  Highly recommended

    PDF Arthur Conan Doyle Õ PDF The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUB ↠ The Õ posthd.pro complete ebok, brigadier pdf, gerard download, The Complete mobile, The Complete Brigadier Gerard PDF/EPUBPicked up the book thinking that other authors are using the famous Arthur Conan Doyle as i've never heard of him writing about a brigadier beforeBut what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be From the prologue of a spy story it continued to hook me till the end though it can be repetitive at timesThe protagonist doesn't always wins and the Fleur Mille resembled my wannabe altered ego of a flambouyant Don Juan ;All in a good read
