A good listen
A pleasant retelling of the exploits of Brigadier Gerard, a retired Hussar from Napolean's Armies. The stories are interesting and amusing. Gerard has a comically high opinion of himself and it is his manner of telling the stories that makes the stories a pleasure to listen to. The reader does a good job giving life to the words of Gerard as well as the many characters Gerard encounters in his adventures. I certainly enjoyed listening to it on an all too long car ride.
