Publisher Description

Sherlock Holmes is clear proof of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's talent for creating memorable characters and there are many more to be found in the rest of his body of work. The hero of The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard is one of his most ingenious inventions, brought to life, here, with wicked humour by Rupert Degas. Preposterously vain and yet endearing, Brigadier Gerard makes for a tremendously fun companion as he relives the exploits of his military career fighting in the Napoleonic campaigns. Crediting himself with unparalleled military prowess and irresistible powers of seduction, Gerard goes as far as to suggest that his absence from the Battle of Waterloo was the reason for Napoleon's defeat!
