'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--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
THE FLASHMAN PAPERS 1848-1849 VOLUME THREE
When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future – would it lie in the House of Commons or the West African slave trade? Was there, for the matter, very much difference? For one thing was certain, that Flashman would bring to his great adventure all the qualities which had earned him fame and honour in the First Afghan War and brought him through his deadly power struggle with Bismark: qualities like charm, cowardice, quickness of thought, treachery, lechery, and above all, fleetness of foot.
"The Flashman books bristle with action…and they are very, very funny"
"George MacDonald Fraser is going great guns, and, happy thought, he still has some 50 years of the rascal's misdeeds to regale us with"
