The bully and braggart of Tom Brown's Schooldays is an antihero who
gets away with cowardice and lechery through a combination of
intelligence, hypocrisy and good luck. The Flashman books are
intelligent entertainments that excite us and make us think. In the
latest, fresh from the Indian Mutiny and his knighthood, Flashman
meets old enemies and soon finds himself on the road to Harper's
Ferry. The martyrdom of John Brown and the drift of the USA towards
civil war are, it turns out, all down to Harry Flashman's account,
like just about everything else. (Kirkus UK)
The tenth novel in the Flashman series. Flashman's efforts land him
in one of the tightest corners of his inglorious but not unexciting
career. Contributing to igniting the US Civil War, he's saved by a
dusky beauty. He can be relied on to live down his reputation in
bed and battle.
