The Society's book club will discuss George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman on the March (The Flashman Papers, Book 11). Sir Harry Paget Flashman is a fictional character created by George MacDonald Fraser based on the character "Flashman" in Tom Brown's School Days. Fraser decided to write Flashman's memoirs, in which the school bully is identified as an "illustrious Victorian soldier" who plays a key part in many of the defining military campaigns of the 19th century. In this book we read of the vital role Flashman played during the Abyssinia Expedition led by General Napier in 1868 to rescue a small group of British citizens held captive by the Emperor Theodore.
Flashman on the March is available in hardcover (ISBN 978-0007197392), paperback (ISBN 978-0007197408), and in Kindle formats.
We will meet in The Long Bar on the ground floor of the National Theatre.
