The notorious Flashman emerged in Tom Brown’s schooldays, this book carries on a new generation of the family: Thomas Flashman, whose career covers the Napoleonic and Georgian era.

In 1806 Prussia declares war on France and in a disastrous campaign loses most of its territory. Russia is forced to come to its aid and Britain sends observers - Flashman joins this mission in what should be a safe diplomatic visit ..

From bloody, frozen retreats to battles in blizzards, he is soon in the thick of the action as a country fights for its very survival - with the aid of a Russian countess, our hero uncovers the enemy’s plans – and works to frustrate them.

Also included is the short story Flashman’s Christmas, set in Paris a few months after the battle of Waterloo. As royalists conduct vindictive purges on former Bonapartists, Flashman is embroiled in a notorious eve of execution jail-break as he is reunited with old friends to outwit old enemies.
