    Thomas shares many of the family traits, particularly the ability to find himself reluctantly at the sharp end of many major events of his age. Flashman, gives an illuminating account with a unique perspective. It details feats of incredible courage, (not his, obviously), reckless folly, and sheer good luck that were to change the future of India and the career of a general who would later win a war in Europe.
