A special facsimile edition of the original Flashman. Perfect for fans of The Flashman Papers.
Coward, scoundrel, imposter, and cad though Flashman may be, there is no better man to go into the jungle with. George MacDonald Fraser’s beloved series of Flashman adventures resurrects the blackguard bully of Tom Brown’s Schooldays as he survives fearful ordeals and outlandish perils across the four corners the world, his redeeming qualities being humour and shameless honesty. A vivid voice of times long gone, Flashman’s memoirs remain as fresh and enthralling as when penned – a treat for readers of all ages.
In this first instalment of The Flashman Papers, his adventures as the reluctant secret agent in Afghanistan and his entry into the exclusive company of Lord Cardigan’s Hussars culminate in Flashman’s foulest hour – his part in the historic disaster of the Retreat from Kabul.
