From Library Journal
Despite the enduring popularity of the Holmes and Watson mysteries, Conan Doyle considered these two knight-in-armor stories to be his finest work. When published in 1891, The White Company became Britain's best-selling book since Ivanhoe, surpassing A Tale of Two Cities, Treasure Island, and other literary giants. Oddly, this is the first time the two have ever been collected in a single volume. This dual edition contains an introduction by George MacDonald Fraser.

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.
