"SPOILER ALERT! This set is clearly heavily influenced by the Dumas book The Three Musketeers, to which we will frequently refer in this review.

The story told of a young man from Gascony coming to Paris in 1625 to join the King's Musketeers, and of the adventures he had with his new friends, the titular three musketeers. The story was a big hit and was quickly released as a book, achieving international success and widely translated. Several follow-up books would appear, taking the story forward many years, but it was the first book that remained the favourite with many, giving a fame to the various real historical characters contained in the book, as well as the King's musketeers themselves of course, which would not have been so widespread were it not for the book…"
