(2014)
(The fourth book in the Flashman series)
A novel by

 
 
This book covers the second half of Thomas Flashman's experiences in the Peninsular War and follows on from Flashman in the Peninsula.

Having lost his role as a staff officer, Flashman finds himself commanding a company in an infantry battalion. In between cuckolding his soldiers and annoying his superiors, he finds himself at the heart of the two bloodiest actions of the war. With drama and disaster in equal measure, he provides a firsthand account of not only the horror of battle but also the bloody aftermath.

Hopes for a quieter life backfire horribly when he is sent behind enemy lines to help recover an important British prisoner, who also happens to be a hated rival. His adventures take him the length of Spain and all the way to Paris on one of the most audacious wartime journeys ever undertaken. With the future of the French empire briefly placed in his quaking hands, Flashman dodges lovers, angry fathers, conspirators, and ministers of state in a desperate effort to keep his cowardly carcass in one piece.

This extraordinary account brings together various historical events while also giving a disturbing insight into the creation of a French literary classic!
