Publisher's Summary

Flashman is back! When the memoirs of Sir Harry Flashman, the celebrated Victorian soldier and scoundrel, first came to light 30 years ago, we were introduced to adventures related with verve, dash, and meticulous historical detail. Now come three new episodes in the career of this eminent and disreputable adventurer. Flashy, as he is known to fans, is once again at the center of pivotal historic events: the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in the 1880s; the Tranby Croft gambling scandal involving the Prince of Wales; and the aftermath of Rorke's Drift. Thrown into contact with assorted royalty, grand tarts, and political heavyweights, including Bismarck, Flashman observes the uncensored truth about some of the 20th century's greatest heroes and scoundrels.


What the Critics Say

"This new book is light, clever, and comical." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Not only are the Flashman books extremely funny, but they give meticulous care to authenticity. You can, between the guffaws, learn from them." (The Washington Post)

But I hate Anti-heroes!?

A wondrous exception! An imaginative dash thru historical situations makes for an amazingly fast paced, humorous read. Took a few minutes to get used to the readers pace, and tone, but after that, really liked him, also. Not for the prudish, but sexual situations are well written, and in good fun, not some sort of thrown in appeal to teenage prurient interest. Check out Amazon for reviews of the author's other Flashman novels. Can only pray they will add his other Flashman books. Perhaps not Fraser's best, but excellent nonetheless. More humor than the O'Brian books, and as good, in their own way.

More Flashman Please

A worthy addition to the Flashman opus- though not the best starting place for newcomers to this series. Readers who love Sharpe will adore Flashie. Fraser offers a rollicking romp through history through Flashman's wonderfully jaundiced eyes. Irreverent, poignant, factual, bawdy, action-packed-- these books are a find.

I hope Audible will offer all the Flashman books so readers can start at the beginning. If not, read the others first, then enjoy this audiobook for dessert. David Case (aka Frederick Davidson) is the perfect reader.
