I ordered this from Amazon with Sir Nigel, the prequel, published by Dover. The difference is amazing. The Dover is a properly published book, with professional typesetting, an introduction by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle explaining his use of modern English with a few archaisms instead of attempting to write in Middle English, full publishing information, and the original illustrations from the 1906 edition. In contrast, this edition of The White Company looks like a print-on-demand Kindle edition. Chapters do not begin on a new page, but are run on from the preceding chapter. The typesetting might be OK for a company report completed in Word, but does not make for easy reading. The font is far smaller than in the Dover edition. The cover art stretches half-way across the spine so that the book does not exactly look good on your bookshelf. I tried looking for an alternative edition of this book on Amazon but got tired of checking the 115 alternatives, which looked to be the same thing with different cover art. I hope I will eventually find a readable version of The White Company on another bookseller site or find a good used copy in a real bookshop (or Abebooks).

Beware the 'NEW' book ripoff. I fell for it and received a reprint with a generic cover and none of the Wyeth illustrations this book is famous for. This reprint has only 170 pages vs 440 in the original so the font is unreadably small. This must be one of those cases where the original copyright has run out so others can produce reprints. Some, like Dover, are reputable but others (there's not even a publisher listed on this book) are rips. I sent this atrocity back and easily found lots of real, original copies on another bookseller website.

This book could be the sequel (or Prequel) to Robin Hood.
It is written in (Updated) Early Modern English. (Think a less flowery Shakespeare).
The language alone really shows what Modern English lost.

It is a knightly epic tale, of honor and chivalry for the knights, vs laughter and heroism for the common archers.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a master at larger than life characters in his Sherlock Holmes series, and here again, some of his characters becomes legends on the pages.

It is not a gritty realistic tale, Glenn Cooks's the Black Company is a gritty modern take on this genre. But Glenn Cook took much from Sir Arthur, and when you read the ending, you will discover that Guy Kay took much inspiration from how Sir Arthur wrapped up his characters endings. From George R R Martin's descriptions of heraldry to Bernard Cornwell's English Archers, many of the modern writers of the world have read and learned from this book.

This is a great story, but the format of this book has very small margins and a lot of text on page.

Still it is a book worth getting.

John Wayne's favorite book was sure to be a bit on the right wing side so I was not really surprised. This is a fun book though due to the linguistic skill mastered by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of Sherlock Holmes fame. He has done amazing research to achieve the writing and his characters are interesting as always. Dated but a classic. The supremacy of Britain is his main theme with little acknowledgement of the importance of other groups in the world. Which is to be expected and 'of its time'.

There is not one single illustration by N.C. Wyeth - which was fully 50% of the reason I bought the book. The write up specifically references the illustrations but they are not in the book. I thought I had found the perfect gift but I was sorely mistaken. I've reviewed the write up to see what I missed and I do not see where the lack of illustration is noted. Very disappointing. I will return the book but heads up to those of you who are fans of N.C. Wyeth illustrations as well as Conan Doyle stories. I feel cheated.

This is a great book. Probably originally written to appeal to younger male readers, it is an enjoyable read. The thing that I liked the most is that today the book would be considered politically incorrect. Examples: men protect the women and fight to gain their honor; pretty much every character is a Christian and faith is an integral part of the character's lives and motivations; there is a well defined dichotomy between good people and actions, and bad people and actions. Enough political incorrectness to force an SJW college student to seek a "safe space".

All those things were once common in Western literature, but have gradually been removed from much of modern literature - one reason that I enjoyed reading "The White Company". It is also interesting to learn more about the time when it was written - the medieval period of European and English history. There were many words in the book that even the Kindle dictionary couldn't decipher. To me, a book needs to challenge me with ideas, or vocabulary or a new worldview to make it worth reading. This book does.

I am a big Sherlock Holmes fan and also a big fan of Medievel adventure stories with knights, chivalry and dramatic battles. So this book by Conan Doyle seemed the perfect fit for me. It wasn't. There was an abundance of knights and chivalry, but very few dramatic battles. None of the leading characters were even in Jeopardy except for one time, and it wasn't even an actual battle. It was good but not great, and certainly not a "page-turner." From now on when I want Conan Doyle I'll stick with Sherlock Holmes; and when I want Medievel adventure I'll stick with Nigel Tranter and Bernard Cornwell.
Great book definitely a classic. Beautiful language throughout the entire book. Fun adventures, laughed out loud several times throughout the book just at the situations some the characters get into and the way they refer to and converse with their adversaries. I love Sherlock Holmes, but I think Arthur Conan Doyle outdid himself when he wrote Sir Nigel (which I read directly before this book) and The White Company.
