The Flashman Papers follow the exploits of Harry Flashman after he is expelled from Rugby School, as recounted in Tom Brown’s School Days. The memoirs of Flashman have been edited together by George MacDonald Fraser, ad present what is remembered of events, often giving a little more light on them than would have been true at the time.
In this instalment of the Papers, we have Flashman engaged with the slave trade, and meeting with a young Abe Lincoln. As with many things Flashman gets into trouble, gets out of it into deeper trouble. And in general makes for a good read, even if one just sets aside some modern morals. I have to say that I enjoyed Flash For Freedom.
