Yes, the book was written in a different age. The baddie is actually a person in the Sherlock Holmes/Moriarty mould. Yes, the protagonists could have done away with each other in the first book. Indeed given his exploits it was surprising that Drummond even survived the war. Drummond occupies the moral high ground although he works on the wrong side of the law. Like Holmes and Templar, Drummond has a working relationship with officers from Scotland Yard who are frequently left to clear up after him.

Unlike many modern novels, the lower orders speak in the vernacular and some foreigners "English they like Germans speak." This lends a different flavour to the yarns.

Of interest is the pace of the novels in relation to the modern world. Long distance travel is by train not plane although small planes are used from time to time. We also have to remember that the cars used are today's vintage cars and adjust our thoughts accordingly.

Whether the books would appeal to a younger readership used to the modern genre of special forces type thrillers with easily out dateable plots is questionable. To an older readership brought up with Biggles, the Saint, and other tales of daring-do this omnibus will bring back old memories.

The 10 books that comprise this collection work out at 7.7p per book and astonishingly good value for money.

Dear old Bulldog Drummond takes you back to the days when men were men (especially Englishmen) and villains got a jolly good biff on the jaw to teach them a lesson. Actually, that's unfair, because the stories are far better written than that implies, and death, sometimes in unpleasant form, strikes as often as the fist on the jaw. Although the books are for obvious reasons dated, they remain amongst the very best of their type. If you like a good rousing rollicking read, then you are in for a treat.

I missed Bulldog Drummond first time round when I was a boy, but looking back to the difficult years after the first world war I can see its appeal to that generation. The aristocratic/public school/army hero with his monocular chums reminds me of the Magnet and the Gem? The plot is repetitive as they pursue the immortal(and immoral) arch-villain through one adventure after another and save the nation from catastrophe, killing endless people with impunity in the process, while an impotent and incompetent policeman follows up several paces behind. You have to wonder why the hero and the villain did not kill each other and be done with it, but then I suppose there would not have been a book. The writer is tempted to wave the anti-socialist/communist flag a little too vigorously, but again, that goes with age. The writing is verbose and the dialogue of the chums and the villain too irritatingly colourful. I can't believe anyone ever spoke as the Bulldog does and it gets a bit wearing. And anyone so obsessed with risking his own and other peoples lives in daring adventure should never have married the charming Phyllis.

This set of tales of Bulldog Drummond explores many of the problems that beset the World today but in the context of the 'between the wars' period. It has historical interest but is so badly transcribed that this distracts and often confuses the reader. This is a common fault with out of copyright books on Kindle and should be addressed.

Many years ago Bulldog Drummond helped save the world from untoward evil people. These villains were unsporting and a thorough nuance. Our hero and his worthy pals made certain they had their comeuppance. This was without unnecessary violence, and people were golly good chaps. Where has the modern day hero gone?
Thanks for the memory

Good fun in small doses. Very much locked in its era with its appalling class awareness, sexism and xenophobia (especially about 'the boche'! Read them with your tongue planted firmly in your cheek. Take them at face value as relics of a bygone era and have a laugh. I'm not that PC by any means but if you approve of the values they enshrine, seek help. I couldn't get out of my mind the spoof play/film 'Bullshot Crummond'.

Hear about the character all through my early years, so bought the Kindle version. I must admit I was disappointed. Drummond was like Bertie Wooster's thoroughly nasty brother. Silly dialogue from the hero and his friends and some pretty gruesome killings. But it was the politics that made me wince. The author is so far to the right he makes Genghis Khan look like Karl Marx and he uses the stories to expound his nonsensical political views. I wonder if he went on to join Moseley in the Thirties. The only other author I can compare McNeile with is Dennis Wheatley and his novel "Black August". Post WW1 there must have been some real paranoia about the rise of Socialism and this is reflected in works such as these.
