Flashman and the Angel of the Lord | [George MacDonald Fraser]

Flashman and the Angel of the Lord

If only Flashman had got on with his dinner and ignored the handkerchief dropped by a flirtatious hussy in a Calcutta hotel... well, American history might have been different, a disastrous civil war might have been avoided, and Flash Harry himself would have been spared one of the most hair-raising adventures of his misspent life. If only... but alas, the arch-rotter of the Victorian age could never resist the lure of a pretty foot.

Publisher's Summary

If only Flashman had got on with his dinner and ignored the handkerchief dropped by a flirtatious hussy in a Calcutta hotel... well, American history might have been different, a disastrous civil war might have been avoided, and Flash Harry himself would have been spared one of the most hair-raising adventures of his misspent life. If only... but alas, the arch-rotter of the Victorian age could never resist the lure of a pretty foot and this latest extract from The Flashman Papers soon finds him careering towards the little Virginian town of Harper's Ferry, where John Brown and his gang of rugged fanatics were to fire the first shot in the great war against slavery.

    Story
    "The Flash Goes Marching On"

    The irascible character of Harry "Flash" Flashman is compelled by various forces to join the John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry. Along the way, Flash encounters many characters who sport a variety of accents- Upper Crusty English, Scottish, American Southern, to name a few. This narrator does a good job with the British accents, and handles John Brown himself with aplomb. The whining, keening tone of Brown's rhetoric still resonates in my head. What the narrator does best is take certain phrases and make them immensely humorous. I laughed outloud at some of the well-timed comments.
