In Volume II of the Flashman Papers, Flashman tangles with femme fatale Lola Montez and the dastardly Otto Von Bismarck in a battle of wits which will decide the destiny of a continent. Flashman, the arch-cad and toady, matches his wits, his talents for deceit and malice, and above all his speed in evasion against the most brilliant European statesman and against the most beautiful and unscrupulous adventuress of the era.

From London gaming-halls and English hunting-fields to European dungeons and throne-rooms, he is involved in a desperate succession of escapes, disguises, amours and (when he cannot avoid them) hand-to-hand combats. All the while, the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders.

    " This is my least favorite Flashman, although I learned lots about German history. As always Fraser's notes are meticulous. "

    " I can see why Flashman has a cult following: he is deceitful and naughty and manipulative, but somehow still kind of jolly and likeable. He gets himself in and out of various scrapes, and it is a good thing that he is tricked as often as he tricks others. This is the first one i read, and mostly in the bathtub, so didn't pay strict attention to the plot. I do like the historical thing, and somehow this relates to the Prisoner of Zenda which I never read so it went by me. "

    " Great fun. Quick and witty. "
