Product description


"'This is, frankly, glorious. The story is a romp that does not take itself too seriously [...] It is thoroughly delightful, and I recommend it to all who enjoy Flashman, Tom Jones and similar period romps. The great thing is, I think I learned more about the English Civil War from this book than any other I ve read and it was all enjoyable!"
- Michael Jecks, author of Blood in the Sand

"It is great fun and a rollicking good read, while Candy lives an exceptionally and, somewhat unlikely, charmed life in surviving the perils and vicissitudes of the war. The language is ribald and entirely immersed in the culture and conventions of crude 17th-century England. Footnotes and endnotes provided by the editor give the historical detail and context of the narrative intended as an accurate accompanying scholarly apparatus. The story is similar in style to the parodies by Robert Nye, written with an appropriate zest and dash."
- Historical Novel Society

'...a hero who owes much to the legendary Flashman is drinking and whoring his way through the English Civil War.[...]an entertaining and witty guide to the political intrigues of the early Civil War. [...] the research is impeccable and the writing full of verve'
--Antonia Senior,The Times

Jemahl now spends his time teaching, reading history, listening to the Delta Blues, walking his border collie, and whining on Twitter about the government.
