9780007217205: Flashman and the Angel of the Lord (The Flashman Papers, Book 9)

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.

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 would have been different, a disastrous civil war might have been avoided, and Flashman 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. This latest extract of the Flashman Papers soon finds Flashman 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.

Review:

'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 Amis

From the Back Cover:

'
The Flashman Papers 1858-1859
Volume Ten
'

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 would 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 Virginia 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.

“If 1994 throws up a more enjoyable novel, I shall be glad to read it”
D.J. TAYLOR, 'Sunday Times'

“Beautifully done … an intoxicating cocktail”
DAVID ROBSON, 'Sunday Telegraph'

“Next to the coming of the new Messiah, the most welcome appearance one can imagine is the new Flashman book from George MacDonald Fraser”
STEVE GRANT, 'Time Out'
