5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Flashman, 13 April 2009
This review is from: Flashman at the Charge - Vol. IV (Paperback)
This is one of the definitive Flashman books, a cracking read with all the ingredients that made the series so successful: wild adventure, uproarious humour, thrills, spills and skulduggery galore. The historical vignettes, military action and character sketches are all (as ever) meticulously researched with fact and fiction skillfully woven together and, when recounted in Flashman's inimitable voice, they absolutely leap off the page.

I won't bore you with a plot summary; suffice to say that the Crimean War (especially the Charge of the Light Brigade) was never funnier. Newcomers should ideally start at the beginning of the series but if you want a quick introduction to what all the fuss is about, this is as good a place to find out as any.
