Summary

Set in the middle of the fourteenth century, Sir Nigel is a swashbuckling story of the eponymous hero as he seeks his fortune and the hand of his lady-love in England and France in the early part of the Hundred Years War. It is full of high romance and chivalry, battles and brutality, humour and sheer rumbustiousness as the impoverished Nigel Loring and his lascivious attendant Aylward seek their fortunes. Edward III, the Black Prince, Sir John Chandos - one of the original Knights of the Garter - all make their appearances in one of the favourite books from the creator of Sherlock Holmes.

Historical fictionn at it's best.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spent so much of his time with Sherlock Holms he only wrote two books in this series (Sir Nigle & The White Company) This is a pity! This book takes you back to the Hundred Years War with characters and places which should add to your understanding of the period and your list of friends you have met in the pages of books. It is told with humor and scholarship and leave you wishing he had done many more.

a great read

Along with The White Company, Sir Nigel, written by Arthur Conan Doyle, tells of battles, chivalry and honor in the Hundred Year War between France and England. It is full of details of interest to us even seven centuries later. The narrators do a wonderful interpretation of the books.
I enjoyed both very much although their styles differed.
