Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It’s 1868 and Sir Harry Flashman, V.C., arch-cad, amorist, cold-headed soldier, and reluctant hero, is back! Fleeing a chain of vengeful pursuers that includes Mexican bandits, the French Foreign Legion, and the relatives of an infatuated Austrian beauty, Flashy is desperate for somewhere to take cover. So desperate, in fact, that he embarks on a perilous secret intelligence-gathering mission to help free a group of Britons being held captive by a tyrannical Abyssinian king. Along the way, of course, are nightmare castles, brigands, massacres, rebellions, orgies, and the loveliest and most lethal women in Africa, all of which will test the limits of the great bounder's talents for knavery, amorous intrigue, and survival.

Flashman on the March — the twelfth book in George MacDonald Fraser's ever-beloved, always scandalous Flashman Papers series — is Flashman and Fraser at their best.

Review:

"As fine a contribution to history and literature as you could desire...filled with peril, astonishing escapes and sexual escapades...brilliant." The Boston Globe

Review:

"A novelistic gallop through history and imagination....Fraser can easily juggle Conan Doyle and Holmes, Fleming and Bond, Wodehouse and Wooster, and Chandler and Marlowe." Vanity Fair

Review:

"Genius...one of the literary wonders of the age: historical pastiche raised to such dizzy heights that you forget that it is pastiche and savour it as new-minted fiction." The Telegraph
