about this book

At once meticulously faithful to fact and wildly fanciful, Flashman and the Tiger, like other books in the series, is an educational romp through the annals of history. Some thirty years after Flashman arrived on the scene, he is as outrageous and charming as ever.

Eleventh in the series, Flashman and the Tiger features not one, but three stories of international intrigue that find the fictional Flashman thrown headlong into historical events around the world. This time out Flashman is thwarting an attempted assassination of Austria's Emperor Franz Josef ("The Road to Charing Cross"); getting to the bottom of the Tranby Croft gaming scandal–and the Prince of Wales' involvement in it ("The Subtleties of Baccarat"); and, in the title story, impacting the Zulu war while hunting down a longtime enemy.

"The joy of reading Flashman has always lain in his contempt for every piety.... Fraser's Flashman books have earned him a secure place...on the same high shelf as Alexandre Dumas, Rafael Sabatini, and James Fenimore Cooper."—The New Yorker

"Thanks to Fraser's passion for history, his rare gift for a rattling narrative, and his infectious delight in robust, rollicking language, we can rejoice in a work of genius."—The Daily Telegraph

"Fraser's indomitable Victorian scroundrel remains one of English literature's finest comic creations."—Publishers Weekly
