A very nice rediscovery, Superbly narrated by Rupert Degas ( )
  otori | Mar 30, 2017 |
Engaging, gripping, historically accurate and beautifully written, these stories deserve to be much more widely read. As a comic character, Brigadier Etienne Gerard is a flawed but thoroughly entertaining narrator worthy of his spiritual ancestor Sir Harry Paget Flashman; as a swashbuckler he is a worthy descendent of Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan.
