about

The 'Flashman Compendium' is a collection of source texts, histories, poems, maps and pictures that offers further reading to fans of the 'Flashman' series, revealing in greater detail the astonishing true stories and historical events on which the famous series of novels was based.

Originally created in 1857 by the author Thomas Hughes in the novel 'Tom Brown's Schooldays', the character of Harry Flashman was taken up by George MacDonald Fraser in the 1960's, making him the central character in the hugely popular series of historical novels, 'The Flashman Papers'.

This ebook is intended to accompany the first of that series, to which the events of the 'First Anglo-Afghan War' serve as the backdrop. Contained in this ebook are three texts providing insight and detail into this period and these events.

The texts are as follows:

'Tom Browne's Schooldays', - by Thomas Hughes (1857)

'A Journal of the Disasters in Afghanistan 1841- 2', - by Lady Florentia Sale (1843)

'Sale's Brigade in Afghanistan', - by Rev. George R. Gleig (1846)
