Publisher's Summary

Flashman is back! When the memoirs of Sir Harry Flashman, the celebrated Victorian soldier and scoundrel, first came to light 30 years ago, we were introduced to adventures related with verve, dash, and meticulous historical detail. Now come three new episodes in the career of this eminent and disreputable adventurer.

Flashy, as he is known to fans, is once again at the center of pivotal historic events: the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in the 1880s; the Tranby Croft gambling scandal involving the Prince of Wales; and the aftermath of Rorke's Drift. Thrown into contact with assorted royalty, grand tarts, and political heavyweights, including Bismarck, Flashman observes the uncensored truth about some of the 20th century's greatest heroes and scoundrels.

What the Critics Say

"This new book is light, clever, and comical." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Not only are the Flashman books extremely funny, but they give meticulous care to authenticity. You can, between the guffaws, learn from them." (The Washington Post)

    "Five stars for sure!"

    George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman series is like Ian Fleming's James Bond series, only better. He reminds me in some ways of Kipling in his story telling ability. It is a pleasure listening to the way Fraser can take a simple incident and present it with elegance, suspense and humor. And David Case's reading complements this perfectly.

    "Flashman is great- reader is terrible"

    The reader for this audio book is simply terrible. Very hard to understand. I had to stop listening.

    "Awful!"

    Badly red with a ridiculously affected melodramatic accent that makes it imposable to listen to. I have enjoyed hard copies of Flashman before but this was awful. Such a shame.

    "Barely Intelligible"

    I get the sense that the book would be fun to read but the narrator gives one the sense that he is doing a camp imitation of a British valet playing Flashman. I almost feel guilty criticizing the reading because he sounds like he may have some speech pathology. If that is the case I apologize. I find that it is so hard to understand that I can't concentrate and drive at the same time so I miss large sections and am not inspired to rewind so I am just getting an overall impression of the book rather than really delving into it.
