Summary
A comical collection of short stories, Adventures of Gerard follows Etienne Gerard, a Hussar in the French Army during the Napoleonic Wars, who believes that he is the bravest soldier, greatest swordsman, and most accomplished horseman in all of France. While Gerard is very talented and successful as a soldier, he finds himself in precarious situations as he hopes to prove his greatness with feats that are physically impossible for most men. By making his character a vain and ridiculous Frenchman, Arthur Conan Doyle satirizes the stereotypical English view of the French and, by allowing Gerard to make humorous comments about them, English manners, etiquette and attitude
