From the Back Cover
THE FLASHMAN PAPERS 1854-1855
'Forward the Light Brigade' Was there a man dismayed?
Indeed there was. As the British cavalry prepare to launch themselves against the Russian guns at Balaclava, Harry Flashman was not so much dismayed as terrified. But the Crimea was only the beginning: beyond lay the snowbound wastes of the great Russian slave-empire, torture and death from relentless enemies, headlong escapes, savage tribal hordes to the right of him, passionate and beautiful females to the left of him, and finally that order almost unknown but desperate war on the roof of the world, when India was the prize, and there was nothing to stop and armed might of Imperial Russia but the wavering sabre and terrified ingenuity of old Flashy himself.

This is superb entertainment for anyone even remotely interested in history, and if you fail to appreciate the politically (very) incorrect humour well damn your eyes! ;-)
Macdonald Fraser was on top form with this novel; not only do we have the usual mix of historical and fictional events, but there are great heros, heroines and villains. The story ranges from the pool halls of London to Asia via Crimea! Flashman also plays a more active role in events (in some of the latter books he is more of a passive spectator of what's happening).
If you have come across the Flashman series for the first time, then this is fantastic book.
Back to Flashman at the Charge: as always, entertaining and very well researched. Warmly recommended!
