Preface by A. Conan Doyle
It is difficult to make a volume of short stories homogeneous, but these have this in common, that they concern themselves with war and sport - a fact which may commend them to the temper of the times. Such as they are, I have chosen them as the fittest survivors out of the tales which I have written during the last six years.
