From Our Editors

Harry Flashman is everyone's favourite cheat, womanizer and coward, and he's back for more action in Flash for Freedom, recounting his adventures in slave-era America. Forced onto a transatlantic ship by his father-in-law, he finds himself smuggling slaves across the Atlantic, and then, after being captured by the Yankee navy, changes his tune and declares himself an abolitionist! Much against his worse inclinations, he becomes an agent of the underground railroad. This hilarious historical fiction lets you see Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Beecher Stowe and others through the eyes of George MacDonald Fraser's infamous blackguard. Not for the faint of humour...
