This book presents perhaps the most successful work of the inimitable Sir A. Conan Doyle - the historical novel "White Squad"! This is truly the greatest anthem of patriotism, loyalty to duty and courage. From each of its pages is the romance of the Middle Ages - knights and beautiful ladies, crusades and terrible internecine wars. The work on the book lasted almost a year and was completed in early 1890. Conan Doyle later recalled that it was one of the happiest periods of his life. In Conan Doyle's homeland, the "White Squad" immediately gained great popularity. Suffice it to say that in the first eight years alone, it has withstood 25 editions. Many literary critics considered and continue to consider it the best work of Conan Doyle.
