An interesting and enjoyable read in the Flashman style, exploring some of the unsavoury bits of Victoria's empire. Likeable, mostly believable, characters and a rollicking plot kept me reading and I would eagerly read this author's work again. However, it would benefit from a good editor to sort out issues such as the confusing timelines of some key events and a couple of plot devices that stretch credibility; without these I would have given it 4 stars. Also, as it's based on true events, I'd have appreciated a footnote or preface detailing the real historical facts behind the tale.

This book was a little too simplistic for my taste.

I found that, having some knowledge of both Africa and India, the author had taken too many liberties with facts, but it was a good 'Boy's Own' ripping yarn

Good but not quite great, ok start, decent build up hurried ending, but good potential, hopefully there will be a follow-up

Excellent read, colourful and laced with historical detail. The scrapes and escapes of Harry Flashman with the heroics of Richard Sharpe. I hope for a second installment soon

I mostly enjoyed this book and would recommend it as a light holiday read. It was fast paced and switched from South Africa to India easily enough, but I'd have liked some more detail.

A good read, well written and it maintains a good pace throughout, with limited historical knowledge on this period, it would appear to have been well researched too.

An interesting and fast moving story about the former colonial Army. I would like to see any similar books, maybe by the same author.

Having read a number of books related to the period
the story covered, l enjoyed the historical background
to the adventure. Moreover, I found the main characters
to be most interesting and funny. This is a great read
that all readers of historical fiction should take the
opportunity to enjoy.
