Flashman and the Dragon: Flashman, Book 10 | [George MacDonald Fraser, Kati Nicholl (abridged by)]

Flashman and the Dragon: Flashman, Book 10

In China, in 1860, a lot of people mistakenly put their trust in Flashman: the English vicar’s daughter with her cargo of opium; Lord Elgin in search of an intelligence chief; the Emperor’s ravishing concubine, seeking a champion in her struggles for power; and Szu-Zhan, the female bandit colossus, as practised in the arts of love as in the arts of war. They were not to know that behind his Victoria Cross, Harry Flashman was a base coward and a charlatan. They took him at face value. And he took them, for all he could, while China seethed through the bloodiest civil war in history.

Publisher's Summary

Harry Flashman - the unrepentant bully of Tom Brown’s schooldays, now with a Victoria Cross - has three main talents: horsemanship, facility with foreign languages, and fornication. A reluctant military hero, Flashman plays a key part in most of the defining military campaigns of the 19th century, despite trying his utmost to escape them all. "When all other trusts fail, turn to Flashman." (Abraham LincoIn)

In China, in 1860, a lot of people mistakenly put their trust in Flashman: the English vicar’s daughter with her cargo of opium; Lord Elgin in search of an intelligence chief; the Emperor’s ravishing concubine, seeking a champion in her struggles for power; and Szu-Zhan, the female bandit colossus, as practised in the arts of love as in the arts of war.

They were not to know that behind his Victoria Cross, Harry Flashman was a base coward and a charlatan. They took him at face value. And he took them, for all he could, while China seethed through the bloodiest civil war in history and the British and French armies hacked their way to the heart of the Forbidden City.…

What the Critics Say

"The Flashman Papers do what all great sagas do - winning new admirers along the way but never, ever betraying old ones. It is an immense achievement." (Sunday Telegraph)

"Not only are the Flashman books extremely funny, but they give meticulous care to authenticity. You can, between the guffaws, learn from them." (Washington Post)

    "Good for an Abridged Version"

    I love the Flashman series and this is one of my favorites. I would have preferred the unabridged version but this abridgment was very well done and I found the book very enjoyable.

    "Kind of enjoyed it...."
    What did you like most about Flashman and the Dragon?

    It was fun and interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Flahman's royal lover


    Which character – as performed by Toby Stephens – was your favourite?

    Loved them all, he is fab!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What a stupid question, the only thing Flashman moves is his groin.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a bit complicated, for a driver, driving all over the place, but this book besides being a good yarn, had a serious side to it.
