Harry Flashman and the Invasion of Iraq based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The late George MacDonald Fraser must be turning in his grave at the inept and disappointing usurpation of his unwitting hero whose misadventures we followed through 12 books, to whit, Harry Flashman, the notorious bully from Tom Arnold¿s forgotten Victorian classic Tom Brown¿s Schooldays. Captain Harry Flashman of the Queen¿s Royal Hussars, descendant of the legendary General Flashman VC OBE, is forced to take part in the Gulf War and despite his most ingenious machinations ends up slogging through the mud with the Royal Marines. Cowardice, wenches and lame attempts at humour do not make this a worthy contender for old Harry Flashman¿s crowd and it should be read only by those who are really, really interested in the Iraq war and have never heard of George MacDonald Fraser.
