Sir Nigel is set during the early phase of the Hundred Years' War, spanning the years 1350 to 1356. It describes the early life of that book's hero Nigel Loring, a knight in the service of King Edward III in the first phase of the Hundred Years' War. The tale traces the fortunes of the family of Loring of the Manor of Tilford in Surrey, many of whose scions had been prominent in the service of the Norman and Angevin Kings of England, against the backdrop of the Black Death. The White Company is set in England, France, and Spain, in the years 1366 and 1367, against the background of the campaign of Edward, the Black Prince to restore Peter of Castile to the throne of the Kingdom of Castile. At the age of twenty, young Alleyne leaves the Catholic abbey where he has been raised, and goes out to see the world, in accordance with the terms of his father's will. He meets veteran archer Sam Aylward, a recruiter who has returned to England, and joins the White Company of mercenaries under command of Sir Nigel Loring. Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a British writer best known for his detective fiction featuring the character Sherlock Holmes. The Sherlock Holmes stories are generally considered milestones in the field of crime fiction. Doyle is also known for writing the fictional adventures of Professor Challenger and for propagating the mystery of the Mary Celeste. He was a prolific writer whose other works include fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction and historical novels.

Certainly everyone has heard of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His Sherlock Holmes stories will never be forgotten. But most people don't realize that he was also very possibly the best historical novelist of his day. Sir Nigel and the White Company combines two of his best novels into one. Sir Nigel describes the early years of Nigel Loring during his initial service with King Edward III during the Hundred Years War. Doyle captures the period brilliantly'from the cadence and style of their speech, to unforgettable descriptions of court life, the capture of the Castle of La Brohiniere, to a stirring account of the Battle of Poitiers. It is a classic adventure tale, full of romance, chivalry, battles, brutality, and humor as the impoverished Nigel Loring and his attendant Aylward seek their fortunes.In The White Company, it is now 1366 and Sir Nigel is the leader of a raucous band of English bowmen known as the White Company. It's a story of hard blows and daring feats, to be sure, but it also captures the spirit that animated the English leaders and the reasons behind the fearsome reputation of the English archers. When Conan Doyle was once asked which novel of his was his favorite, he replied, The White Company. ?I was young? he said, ?and full of the first joy of life and action and I think I got some of it into my pages."

Medieval Europe and the Hundred Years’ War As Seen By Sir Doyle “Holy men? Holy cabbages! Holy bean-pods! What do they do but live and suck in sustenance and grow fat?

There is work in the world, man, and it is not by hiding behind stone walls that we shall do it.” - Arthur Conan Doyle, The White Company Alleyne is all-grown up now and ready to leave the comfort of the abbey where he was raised.
