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.

'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 so much a march as a full-blooded charge, fortified by the usual lashings of salty sex, meticulously choreographed battle scenes and hilariously spineless acts of self preservation by Flashman.’ Sunday Times
‘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
‘A first-rate historical novelist’ Kingsley AmisFrom the Back Cover:
THE FLASHMAN PAPERS 1849-1850 AND 1875-1876
What was Harry Flashman doing on the slopes of little Bighorn, caught between the gallant remnant of Custer’s 7th Cavalry and the withering attack of Sitting Bull’s Braves? He was trying to get out of the line of fire and escape yet again with his life (if not with his honour) intact after setting the American West by its ears. Here is the legendary and authentic West of Mangas Colorado and Kit Carson, of Custer and Spotted Tail, of Crazy eccentrics, scoundrels and, of course, Indian belles, dusky beauties, enthusiastic widows and mysterious adventuresses; this seventh volume of 'The Flashman Papers' shows the West as it really was. Terrifying!
‘Flashman is the greatest thing to come down the pik since Horatio Hornblower packed up his flag’
‘The Flashman books bristle with action…and they are very, very funny. The seventh Flashman is as fresh as the first’
