    Flashman must choose - politcs in London or slave trading in Africa - not that it matters really in this hilarious third installement of the Flashman Papers. When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord George Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future - would it lie in the House of Commons or the West African slave trade? Was there, for that matter, very much difference?

    In China, in 1860, a lot of people mistakenly put their trust in Flashman: the English vicar’s daughter with her cargo of opium; Lord Elgin in search of an intelligence chief; the Emperor’s ravishing concubine, seeking a champion in her struggles for power; and Szu-Zhan, the female bandit colossus, as practised in the arts of love as in the arts of war. They were not to know that behind his Victoria Cross, Harry Flashman was a base coward and a charlatan. They took him at face value. And he took them, for all he could, while China seethed through the bloodiest civil war in history.

    Many have marvelled at General Napier's daring 1868 expedition through the treacherous peaks and bottomless chasms of Abyssinia to rescue a small group of British citizens held captive by the mad tyrant Emperor Theodore. But the vital role of Sir Harry Flashman, V.C., in the success of this campaign has hitherto gone unrecorded.

When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord George Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future – would it lie in the House of Commons or the West African slave trade?

    Wäre Lola Montez nicht gewesen, hätte Harry Flashman Bismarck nicht kennengelernt - und Schleswig-Holstein wäre heute eine dänische Provinz. Aussicht auf Profit und Abenteuerlust locken ihn aus den Londoner Spielsälen nach Deutschland. Eine dramatische Folge von Fluchtversuchen, Verkleidungen und Amouren treiben ihn durch Deutschland, wo er schließlich in die Wirren der Revolution 1848 in München gerät. Flashman beweist hier von neuem seinen überlegenen Umgang mit Staatsmännern vom Kaliber Bismarcks, mit Kurtisanen, Duellanten, Kammerzofen und Damen der Gesellschaft.
