Flashman

by George Macdonald Fraser

Soldier, lover, adventurer, he fought and wenched his way to glory (and lechery, and skullduggery, and conduct unbecoming a gentleman)

Flashman and the Tiger

by George Macdonald Fraser

For the first time in four years comes a new book in George MacDonald Fraser's long-running series chronicling the adventures of Sir Harry Paget Flashman. Eleventh in the series, Flashman and the Tiger features not one, but three stories of international intrigue that find the fictional Flashman thrown headlong into historical events around the world. This time out Flashman is thwarting an attempted assassination of Austria's Emperor Franz Josef ("The Road to Charing Cross"); getting to the bottom of the Tranby Croft gaming scandal-and the Prince of Wales' involvement in it ("The Subtleties of Baccarat"); and, in the title story, impacting the Zulu war while hunting down a longtime enemy. At once meticulously faithful to fact and wildly fanciful, Flashman and the Tiger is an educational romp through the annals of history; thirty years after he began the series, Fraser is at the top of his game.

Flashman at the Charge

by George Macdonald Fraser

Flashman's attempts to avoid military service in the Crimean fail, and he soon finds himself in the thick of things as the Russians begin to advance... and he is captured!

Flashman on the March

by George Macdonald Fraser

It's 1868 and Sir Harry Flashman, V. C. , arch-cad, amorist, cold-headed soldier, and reluctant hero, is back! Fleeing a chain of vengeful pursuers that includes Mexican bandits, the French Foreign Legion, and the relatives of an infatuated Austrian beauty, Flashy is desperate for somewhere to take cover. So desperate, in fact, that he embarks on a perilous secret intelligence-gathering mission to help free a group of Britons being held captive by a tyrannical Abyssinian king. That mission rapidly turns into one of the most famous expeditions in British military history, and along the way, of course, are nightmare castles, brigands, massacres, rebellions, orgies, and the loveliest and most lethal women in Africa-including a voluptuous African queen with a weakness for stalwart adventurers whom she nonetheless occasionally throws to her pet lions-who will test the limits of the great bounder's talents for knavery, amorous intrigue, and survival. Flashman on the March-the twelfth book in George MacDonald Fraser's ever-beloved, always scandalous Flashman Papers series-is Flashman and Fraser at their best. From the Hardcover edition.

The Reavers

by George Macdonald Fraser

After twelve gloriously scandalous Flashman novels, the incomparable George MacDonald Fraser gives us a totally hilarious tale of derring-do from a different era. It's the turn of the seventeenth century (sort of) in the wild Borderlands of Scotland. The irresistible Lady Godiva Dacre and her "chocolate-box pretty" companion Mistress Kylie Delishe find themselves caught between the dashing Bonny Gilderoy (think Johnny Depp on a horse in a tunic) and Archie Noble (Steve McQueen in Elizabethan garb). A casket of jewels, an accidental murder, and an estate at risk are the order of the day. Amidst preposterous alliances and ridiculous complications of the heart, our heroines discover a fiendish Spanish plot to overthrow the king. What ensues is an utterly uproarious thrill ride filled with lecherous mischief, diabolical intrigue, and a cast of supporting characters that only George Fraser could deliver.From the Trade Paperback edition.
