Overview

Following the popularity of the memoirs of Harry Flashman, the Victorian scoundrel who got himself embroiled in many events of his age, this book introduces a new generation of the family: Thomas Flashman, whose career covers the Napoleonic and Georgian era. This first book covers his adventures with Thomas Cochrane, one of the most extraordinary naval commanders of all time. From the brothels and gambling dens of London, through political intrigues and espionage, the action moves to the Mediterranean and the real life character of Thomas Cochrane. This book covers the start of Cochrane's career including the most astounding single ship action of the Napoleonic war. Thomas Flashman provides a unique insight as danger stalks him like a persistent bailiff through a series of adventures that prove history really is stranger than fiction.

Well done, Robert Brightwell. Thomas Flashman is not the same as Sir Haryy, but an interesting and caddish character of his own. I recommend it if you are a fan of Fraser's Flashman, or a fan of naval stories. Look forward to more!

I have also read the entire Flashman series and enjoyed this first in a series. I am looking forward to the next.

I have read all of the Flashman series and so thought I would give this a go. It was an excellent read and as I discovered on reading the historical notes and doing a bit of surfing, largely based on historical fact. The Flashman character is well developed and a rogue although adapted for the times he lived in so not exactly like the GMF character. Cochrane, the leading historical character had truly amazing real life adventures. I will certainly read the next one in the series.

I suspect the 2 star reviewer wasn't familiar with GBF's Flashman series. This is a delightful read for any lovers of the 'scoundrel witness to history' genre. It takes place around the time of the Sharpe's Rifles series in and around French occupied Spain.

It seems to have followed another TV program which may or may not have been by this author. It is a fast pased book; am not sure about the sexual content. The sea adventures were good.
