Summary
Based on satirical short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about Brigadier Etienne Gerard, a vain, egotistical, Hussar officer serving in the French Army during the Napoleonic Wars' occupation of Spain, who is utterly convinced that he is the bravest soldier, greatest swordsman, most accomplished horseman and most gallant that ever lived - and intends to prove it
