The White Company  (1891) 
by Arthur Conan Doyle
The White Company by Arthur Conan Doyle is a historical adventure set during the Hundred Years' War. In 1889, Doyle attended a lecture on medieval times and began to seriously think about writing a novel set in the fourteenth century. It was written after extensive research, and initially published in serialized form in 1891 in Cornhill Magazine.
