Harry Flashman: the unrepentant bully of Tom Brown?s schooldays, now with a Victoria Cross, has three main talents ? horsemanship, facility with foreign languages and fornication. A reluctant military hero, Flashman plays a key part in most of the defining military campaigns of the 19th century, despite trying his utmost to escape them all.

Expelled from Rugby for drunkenness, and none too welcome at home after seducing his father?s mistress, the young Flashman embarks on a military career with Lord Cardigan?s Hussars.

En route to Afghanistan, our hero hones his skills as a soldier, duellist, imposter, coward and amorist (mastering all 97 ways of Hindu love-making during a brief sojourn in Calcutta), before being pressed into reluctant service as a secret agent. His Afghan adventures culminate in a starring role in that great historic disaster, the Retreat from Kabul.


'The Flashman Papers do what all great sagas do ? winning new admirers along the way but never, ever betraying old ones. It is an immense achievement.' Sunday Telegraph

?Not so much a march as a full-blooded charge, fortified by the usual lashings of salty sex, meticulously choreographed battle scenes and hilariously spineless acts of self preservation by Flashman.? Sunday Times

?Not only are the Flashman books extremely funny, but they give meticulous care to authenticity. You can, between the guffaws, learn from them.? Washington Post

?A first-rate historical novelist? Kingsley Amis
