Many have marvelled at General Napier's daring 1868 expedition through the treacherous peaks and bottomless chasms of Abyssinia to rescue a small group of British citizens held captive by the mad tyrant Emperor Theodore. But the vital role of Sir Harry Flashman, V.C., in the success of this campaign has hitherto gone unrecorded.

A master of lechery, treachery and poltroonery, Flashy's undeserved reputation for heroism renders him the British Army's candidate of choice when it comes to skulking behind enemy lines in Ali Baba attire. After all, who but the great amorist could contemplate navigating a land populated by hostile tribes and the lovliest (and most savage) women in Africa, from leather-clad nymphs with a penchant for torture to de-ballocking Amazons and a voluptuous barbarian queen with a reputation for throwing disobliging guests to her pet lions?

    " I wish more people knew about this series, because perhaps then the books wouldn't be so damned expensive. These are the fake histories of a cowardly, seductive British colonial soldier, which is more entertaining than it sounds. "

    " I found the unreliability of the narrator extremely grating at first, but as the book went on, the footnotes made up for it quite a bit. As my friend Eli said, it would have been more fun to read this book with wikipedia open to get the full background. I am probably not going to read any more of these until I have a solid background on the conflict that they are covering. "

    " Women frequently don't like Flashman, but his total honesty in writing his "memoirs" (these are historically very accurate books, except for the presence of Flashman) appeals to me. His cowardice and "little head" constantly lead him into dangerous situations, including the Charge of the Light Brigade, Little Big Horn, nearly every warring hot spot in the 1800s, and plenty of beautiful barbarian women and psychopaths of both sexes. Unfortunately George MacDonald Fraser died before he could write about all the stories he hinted at. These stories are entertaining and educational. "
