Danger! and Other Stories
The title story of this volume was written about eighteen months before the outbreak of the war, and was intended to direct public attention to the great danger which threatened this country. It is a matter of history how fully this warning has been justified and how, even down to the smallest details, the prediction has been fulfilled.

The Adventures of Gerard
I hope that some readers may possibly be interested in these little tales of the Napoleonic soldiers to the extent of following them up to the springs from which they flow. The age was rich in military material, some of it the most human and the most picturesque that I have ever read.

The Exploits Of Brigadier Gerard
Etienne Gerard, Hussar in the French Army during the Napoleonic Wars, is vain - he is utterly convinced he is the bravest soldier, the greatest swordsman, the most accomplished horseman, and the most gallant lover in all France. He is not entirely wrong, but his self-satisfaction and obsession with honour and glory undercut his brave acts again and again, providing a delightful satire of the stereotypical English view of the French, along with Gerard's baffled view of English manners and attitudes.

Round the Red Lamp
"A strikingly realistic and decidedly original contribution to modern literature."--Boston Saturday Evening Gazette.
