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.

In this volume of The Flashman Papers, 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.

Being in the forces myself, I can very much identify with the drunken debauchery and cowardly antics of the cad and boulder that is Lt Harry Flashman and the way that somehow, through his keen instinct for self preservation, he always evades danger of death and emerges victorious, decorated as a hero. The book is written in the style of a true biography based upon Flashman’s journals. He really is just so wrong and un-politically correct by both past and present standards than one can’t help but to laugh, even when his actions are despicable.

Harry Flashman: the unrepentant bully of Tom Brown's schooldays, now with a Victoria Cross, has three main talents - horsemanship, facility with foreign languages and fornication. A reluctant military hero, Flashman plays a key part in most of the defining military campaigns of the nineteenth century despite trying his utmost to escape them all. Flashman, soldier, duellist, lover, imposter, coward, cad, and hero triumphs in this first installment of The Flashman Papers.

A truly fantastic story of a completely scurrilous unforgivable cad and bounder. Somehow, despite all that, one can’t help but like to laugh at his antics, adventures and good fortunes. Just as good on audible as on paper.
