    The swashbuckling, eponymous hero, Etienne Gerard, is one of Napoleon's gallant French Hussars, who considers himself the finest of them all. Through these "Boys Own Adventures", Conan Doyle pokes gentle fun at both the French and the English. This is the second volume containing eight adventures. (Summary by Phil). Genre/Form: War stories Fiction Military history Aventure stories: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Doyle, Arthur Conan, Sir, Adventures of Gerard.

    What would have made The Adventures of Gerard better? It is obvious I hope from my uniformly giving this title two stars across the board that I am not a fan of this book. I was not expecting anything as brilliant as Doyle's creation of Sherlock Holmes but this book missed the mark in almost every respect. George McDonald Fraser cited Brigadier Gerard as a major inspiration for his own fictional comedic adventurer Harry Flashman, and wrote the introduction to a collection of Gerard stories. Although rare, the Brigadier Gerard stories are still in print.
