Royal Flash by George MacDonald Fraser

Royal Flash by George MacDonald Fraser. This is the second book in the Flashman series. Are unheroic hero becomes entangled with Bismarck and the drive for German unification. Flashy is forced into inpersonating a prince. The doublecrosss are not unexpected but are still carried out in a very slick way. One of the advantages of using Flashman's point of view. As with the first volume the book is hilariously funny and highly historically accurate. Definitely no sophomore slump.

Highly recommended!

Is available through Abebooks.
