Flashman A Novel By Fraser George Macdonald
George MacDonald Fraser-beloved for his series of Flashman historical novels-offers an action-packed memoir of his experiences in Burma during World War II. Fraser was only 19 when he arrived there in the war's final year, and he offers a first-hand glimpse at the camaraderie, danger, and satisfactions of service. A substantial Epilogue, occasioned by the 50th anniversary of VJ-Day in 1995, adds poignancy to a volume that eminent military historian John Keegan described as "one of the great personal memoirs of the Second World War.
Three of George MacDonald Fraser's incomparable and hilarious novels featuring the lovable rogue, soldier, cheat, and coward: Harry Paget Flashman. Praised by everyone from John Updike to Jane Smiley, Fraser was an acknowledged master of comedy and satire, an unrivaled storyteller, whose craft was matched only by his impeccable historical research. And his greatest creation was, of course, Flashman.
