I've been an avid Flashman fan since stumbling across the first book in the series waiting for the plane to take me home from Vietnam in 1970 and have eagerly awaited each new volume. This adventure gets 'only' four stars for two reasons: first of all, it is three seperate stories in one book, an unusual format for a Flashman book and two (and most damaging) the title story is just simply not up to the usual standards maintained by Fraser. Don't get me wrong, it is not bad, by any means, it is just that regular readers of Flashman get spoiled by Fraser's ability to keep you interested and this one just does not quite measure up.
The first two stories are very good without being particularly memorable, the first being the best of the book. Flashman deals with peace treaties, then in what is basically a repeat of the second Flashman book 'Royal Flash', finds himself kidnapped by the son of Count von Starnberg, (one of Flashy's more memorable villains)and is embroiled in a plot to assassinate the Kaiser. Telling more would give away to much of the plot, but it is worth reading. The second story involves a almost unknown in this country Victorian scandal, and you find that Flashman's wife, the beautiful Elspeth playing a central role. This is defintely enjoyable to Flashman regulars since Elspeth's usual roles are cameo's at best, but the scandal has little interst to Americans.
I defintely recommend any of the Flashman books, but you haven't read Flashman yet, I wouldn't suggest you start with this one...(perhaps "Flashman and the Great Game" or "Flashman and the Dragon" would be the best starting point, but I think you miss a lot of the flavor if you don't read them all in order...)But do yourself a favor and check out Flashman...you won't be disappointed...

It's been a while between tots of brandy, but the most recent Flashman novel will prove to be no disappointment to fans of the arch-cad. Fraser has opted for brevity this time around, and delivered three short stories that range across years and locales, and share with us the exploits of an older, wiser, even more cynical and yet no less cavalier Harry Flashman. The first and longest story concerns our hero's being flung unwittingly (as always) into a covert scheme to foil the assassination of the Emperor of Austria and thus avert the start of World War I (or at least postpone it for 30 years). It's a brief yarn, but we're spared none of Flashy's trademark feigned bravado, uncontrollable lust and infuriating propensity to land himself belly-up in the direst of 19th-century predicaments. Fraser's attention to historical detail while adding his own humorous twist to particular events is, as always, flawless. The second story concerns a scandal erupting in the Prince of Wales' court over a game of baccarat, in which Flashman plays a cunning hand, and his wife Elspeth an even more cunning one, revealing a sly aspect to her character neither the reader nor Flashman himself could ever have suspected. The final story is the shortest, and details Harry's campaign to redeem the honour of his niece, while bumping into a handful of notable Victorian figures en route. This last episode also alludes to a larger adventure - Flashman's contribution to the Zulu Wars - which I only hope hits the shelves sooner rather than later!
A rollicking trio of yarns, and yet another worthy addition to the hoary old bugger's memoirs.

An aging Flashy proves that his incredible luck is yet still with him.
I'm a fan of Unabridged books on tape, and sometimes they can get, well, rather long. Not this gem. As with the typical Flashman adventure, Flash gets in trouble repeatedly, and somehow, it always manages to become someone else's trouble. Yes, it is hard to imagine why those folks don't see through Col. Flashman, but they don't. Do they?
The reader of this tape has exactly the accent that you always expected Flashy to have. David Case is an accomplished reader, and he has managed to get Flashy perfect, if a tiny bit thick, but did you imagine Flashy any other way?
In any case, this is unabridged, so you don't miss a bit of Flashman action.

Once again, GMF delivers a well crafted, historically accurate, yet side-splitting Flashman adventure. As a veteran of the Flashman Papers, I cannot say this is my favorate, however I wouldn't be able to choose just one anyway. If you've read any of the other books, you'll love this one. If you haven't, you'll want to read them all!

Format: Paperback
I really enjoy this series of books about Harry Flashman, coward, scoundrel, and unwitting hero of the glory days of the British Empire. This series, which has been ongoing for 30 years, always delights me with its wit, and also with instilling knowledge of many exotic places and events. The scholarship behind the tales is quite sound, for I have read about a lot of these incidents and what the author presents (with the exception of Flashman's participation, of course) is accurate. This latest work is a combination of three different incidents, each one different and entertaining. You know that our "hero" is always going to get out of the situations in which he finds himself, but the joy is in reading and discovering how he accomplishes it. May this series go on for another 30 years!
