Napoleon's presumptuous but unsung hero, the Brigadier Gerard, faces certain death at every turn while outwitting the enemies of France as he careens across Europe during the Napoleonic Wars.
This series of eight stories includes: I) How Brigadier Gerard Lost His Ear, II) How the Brigadier Captured Saragossa, III) How the Brigadier Slew the Fox, IV) How the Brigadier Saved the Army, V) How the Brigadier Triumphed in England, VI) How the Brigadier Rode to Minsk, VII) How the Brigadier Bore Himself at Waterloo, and VIII) The Last Adventure of the Brigadier.

There was the gondolier, a swart, hard-faced, murderous ruffian, and beside him were three other men, one of them a little, twisted fellow with an air of authority and several keys in his hand, the other two tall young servants in a smart livery. As I listened to their talk I saw that the small man was the steward of the house, and that the others were under his orders.
