#2 on my All-Time Top 10

by Carl Hoffman
(5/5)

I usually enjoy the Flashman books more or less depending on my engagement with their historical content, and generally I'm not big on westerns. But this was like one of the great Hollywood films in the way it captured the majesty and adventure of the West, with humor and satire sprinkled throughout. In 1849, Flashy participates in the Gold Rush; 27 years later, he returns in time to become the sole white survivor of Custer's Last Stand. The greatest chase of the entire Flashman series occurs about halfway through, with a murderous Apache war party pursuing Sir Harry across the New Mexican desert. Reading it, I literally couldn't breathe; when it was over, I choked up over Fraser's sheer storytelling brilliance. What a writer!


Flashman and the Redskins is the seventh in the series of novels on the exploits of Colonel Flashman the fictional anti-her

by C. M Mills "Michael Mills"
(5/5)

What a character is Colonel Harry Paget Flashman! Winner of the Victoria Cross; the Congressional Medal of Honor and a veteran of wars fought in Africa, India, China, the Malay Peninsula, Madagascar and other locales. Handsome Flashman is over six feet tall and is a swashbuckling ladies man! All women: old, young, short,tall, slim and fat easily fall prey to his seductive charms!Flashman was a character in Thomas Hughes' "Tom Brown's Schooldays"who was expelled by Dr. Thomas Arnold of Rugby. Charles Macdonald Frazer takes Flashman and uses him in his long series of novels on this complex rogue."Flashman and the Redskins" is a novel divided into two parts:Part One: Flashman is back in the United States fleeing a murder charge. In New Orleans he is reacquainted with the old seadog nemesis the infamous Captain John Charity Spring. Flashy is forced to flee New Orleans before the law and his enemies catch up with him. He escapes with a bordello of black prostitutes under the leadership of the busty madam who hides Flashy. On their way West the girls and Flashy have to deal with maurading Indians. Flashy has sex with one of the prostitutes. In part two he will learn that as a result of this union he has a son who has grown up as a Sioux Indian. Flashy is captured by the Indians; is forced into a marriage with the Chief's daughter and after six months escapes across the blazing sands. He is rescued by Kit Carson.Part II: It is 1875-76. Flashman returns to America with his lovely but dumb wife Elspeth. The Flashmans attend the wedding of General Phil Sheridan in Chicago. Flashman pleads with President US Grant to allow General George Armstrong Custer to return to leadership of the 7th Cavalry. Grant concedes to Flashy's request. Adventures abound as Flashy takes part in the Battle of Little Big Horn being rescued by his Indian son.All of the Flashman novels are narrated in the first person by the elderly Flashman who is supposedly writing his memoirs.The books are well written with incredible detail on the lives of the American Indians and what life was like in Victorian America. The sex scenes are short and handled with taste. Fraser's books are always a delight! Everytime I peruse one I thhik that this novel is the best in the series! Once you read one Flashman novel you will wish to read them all! Excellent!


Makes you wish you could have been there

by Cocinero "niebel"
(5/5)

This is one of the two best of the "Flashman" series (the other being the first one: "Flashman"). To understand the beginning situation, one needs to have read "Flash For Freedom," as the two stories fit seamlessly together. In his desperate striving to stay ahead of the law and various revenge-seekers, and somehow get back to safety in England, our hero winds up in an unusual wagon train heading for California, as part of the 1849 gold rush. His description of the great plains back in what he calls "the earlies" makes you wish you could have ridden beside him, at least through the calmer part of the journey. But you'll be glad not to accompany him racing for his life across the Jornada del Muerto before a squad of outraged Apaches, or escaping with (most of) his hair from the battlefield of the Little Big Horn.


Two books in one: first great, second so-so

by D. Mark Blanchard
(4/5)

While I enthusiastically recommend this Flashman volume, I can't agree with Gryphon that it one of the two best. The original Flash, Flash at the Charge, Mountain of Light, and Flash and the Dragon are all better, IMO. The major problem with Redskins is that it's divided into two distinct halves, each covering two different and widely separated historical periods. As a result, it has the marked feel of two books tossed together as one because they both happened to deal with the American West. Like Gryphon, I preferred the first half over the second. The second, which deals with the Little Big Horn, smacks of too much borrowing from Little Big Man. (The same derivative flaw which tainted Royal Flash, which is, in my view, the worst of the series). Still, it's the largest of the 10 and broad and entertaining in its scope. Don't miss it.


More of Fraser's history and humor

by doc peterson
(4/5)

_Flashman and the Redskins_ is essentially two stories, tied together with the common thread of the American West. As Harry Flashman - cad, womanizer, cheat, theif and coward (and also a Knight of the Bath, recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor and Victoria Cross) - winds his way through the West, readers are treated to a veritable "Who's Who" of the time.The first half of the book is about the "opening of the West," as Harry travels the Oregon and Santa Fe trails to California as a '49er. Along the way he makes the acquaintance of such larger-than-life personalities as Kit Carson, Gallatin, Mangas Colorado and Geronimo. The second half of the book Harry returns West, to meet the likes of Geo. Custer, Spotted Tail, Crazy Horse, Anson Mills, Wild Bill Hickock (and a surprise for both Flashman and the reader.)The history, of course, is impeccable. Fraser takes readers across the West from Independence, MO to Santa Fe, north to Ft. Laramie, from Ft. Robinson, the Little Big Horn, and finally, Deadwood. Quite an adventure, indeed. In the middle of it all is Harry Flashman, ever the scoundrel; and this book will not disappoint, as Harry is more devilish than usual. It was a pretty involved and lengthy read, but with so much material (and so many personalities) to cover, it was very much worthwhile.


The Reprehensible Flash Rides Again - and Again and Again

by Douglas S. Wood "Vicarious Life"
(5/5)

The seventh entry in the Flashman series is two books in one. The book picks up whereFlash for Freedom! (Flashman)ended. It's 1849 and Flash is in New Orleans, on the run from the law. He reacquaints himself with Susie Wilnick, a local madam who is moving her brothel west to join the flood of Forty Niners heading to California. Flash marries - again - but even at great personal risk he cannot help his roving eyes...and hands and so forth.He leaves Susie along the west (and in order to take his leave, he commits a deed that is shameful even by Harry Flashman's standards.) He then begins a wild trip across the Old West, even living with Apaches for awhile (where he weds yet again). Along the way, the reader meets many historical characters including Spotted Tail, John Joel Glanton, Mangas Coloradas, Geronimo, and Kit Carson. One of the more interesting historical bits involves Bent's Fort and its mysterious destruction. Harry was there and resolves the mystery.As always Fraser deflates the mythology surrounding historical figures. This characteristic debunking is a bit odd because Fraser believed the mythology about his own army and his own war, the Indian 17th Division of the British Army fighting in Burma during the last months of World War Two (See his war memoirQuartered Safe Out Here: A Harrowing Tale of World War II).Flashman manages to escape the Apaches and returns to England. In Part Two, Elspeth, his `real' English wife convinces Harry to return to the States, which introduces us to even more historical figures and eventually lands Harry right in the midst of the Battle of the Little Big Horn. I found the first part more entertaining and the ending was more than a bit of stretch.Fraser is a marvelous story teller and as he spins out his entertaining tales one also picks up a good deal of history. The reader should exercise caution in accepting Fraser's history. His version tends to be based on older sources and he eschewed more modern works (and certainly rejected modern viewpoints). Enjoy it for what it is: well-told speculations on historical mysteries. While some will be offended by Flashman's views on women, Indians, Africans, and other people of color, in fairness, he also did not generally hold other white men in high regard, perhaps because Harry knew what a scoundrel he was himself.


Flashman in America

by ensiform
(4/5)

Harry Flashman, Victorian England's unlikely hero, the unknown "ace of cads," is up to his old tricks. He travels to the American west with a traveling bordello, goes on a scalp-hunting party, marries an Apache chief's daughter and rides out with Kit Carson in '49. Then it's back to the West in '79 so he can attend the massacre at Little Bighorn and almost be scalped by Frank Standing Bear, who turns out to have a very reasonable grudge against our anti-hero. Whew! As always, Fraser is a raconteur of humor and wit and a historian of astonishing erudition. His depth of research is commendable, and would be even if he didn't use it to make every nuance of historical events more human and understandable. This book, while light reading, is hilarious and instructive: it's a towering achievement.


Flashman in the American West

by Ethan Cooper
(5/5)

A great delight of the Flashman series is to watch George MacDonald Fraser place Harry Flashman, his ubiquitous anti-hero, in great historical events and then to see this loathsome yet endearing character emerge as a hero. In FLASHMAN AND THE REDSKINS, Fraser achieves this daunting feat twice, once in each novella that makes up this fine book.In the first novella, "The Forty-Niner", Fraser shows Flashman escaping from New Orleans, where there is a warrant for his arrest (See, FLASH FOR FREEDOM!) and traveling on the Santa Fe Trail during the 1849 gold rush. Then, in "The Seventy-Sixer", Fraser shows Flashman's adventure in the Dacotah Territory and his amazing escape from the Battle--a skirmish, really, the soldier Flash repeatedly says--of the Little Bighorn.Flashman fans who look to these novels for striking descriptions of events as they might have occurred will not be disappointed in this book. In "The Forty-Niner", Fraser captures the danger and innocence of wagon train travel, as well as the brutal fringes of early western American life, where massacre was a risk faced by all. And in "The Seventy-Sixer," Fraser paints a plausible (and historically accurate) picture of Custer, while showing the aggressive blunders that led to the destruction of his Seventh Cavalry. (How many of you know that Custer was actually attacking a small city of Sioux?)In my opinion, Fraser also does a great job with his Indians in both novellas, communicating lots of information about the Indian way of life, especially among the Apache and Sioux. Here, thanks for these eye-opening portrayals goes to the disillusioned Flashman, who sees Fraser's Indian characters and tribes without sentimentality or hatred. There's good and bad (as well as a drive to survive) in us all, Flashman might say.I must declare, however, that the connection between these novellas--a dastardly act by Flashy in "The Forty-Niners" that produces its equivalent reciprocating act in "The Seventy-Sixers"--was a wee bit farfetched. But, who cares? The novellas in FLASHMAN AND THE REDSKINS were a delight throughout. Highly recommended!


Old Unfaithful

by Giordano Bruno
(3/5)

Through all the slurry of racism and sludge of curmudgeonly conservatism in the Flashman books, of which I've previously reviewed five, there have been two shining qualities that have kept me reading. First is the galloping humor, the sharp satire of almost everything sacred. Second is the historicism, the assurance that within the fiction there is a core of pertinent historical scholarship. Unfortunately, in "Flashman and the Redskins" the humor is less than fresh, and the scholarship is dismal. In fact, the only part of the book worth reading is the first section, in New Orleans, where Flash's scoundrely luck holds true. The wagon train journey that delivers Flash to Santa Fe wallows deeper than buffalo droppings in inaccurate geography and ludicrous descriptions of trail events. The fleeting appearances of "Redskins" along the trail do not have the accuracy, or the ring of accuracy, of Fraser's writing about Pathans and other peoples of the Raj. I can think of two possible reasons, both irritating: 1) Fraser is just as inaccurate about the Pathans and such, but I don't know enough to catch him at it, or 2) Fraser doesn't suppose that conditions in America require the same level of research that conditions in the British Empire require.In any case, I'm gonna stall on reading any more of the series for a couple of years, or decades. It's getting repetitive. Besides, various commentators on my earlier reviews have assured me that Fraser really did mean much of the nonsense Flashman spouts, that Fraser was as much an insular chauvinist as Paul Goodman, that he sincerely believed the British Empire was largely a boon to the dusky races sunk in their age-old lethargy, that if only the White Man had Borne his Burden long enough the world would now be nigh unto paradise. The implication, my friends, is that enthusiastic readers of the Flashman books are getting their jollies from deriding colored people, demeaning women, and in general escaping the self-censorship of their vilest thoughts which they reluctantly learned in school and from the ineluctable reality of modern life. Sharing a sneer with my neighborhood racist isn't much fun after all.


Flashman and the Redskins

by Greg Deane
(4/5)

Flashman and the Redskins is quite amusing and does offer some interesting insights, and the book put me onto other more objective accounts, notably Cremony's "Life among the Apaches". But while I enjoy MacDonald, I find his tendency to overstate similarities between the vices of westerners and those who meet them, he is not willing to recognise the virtues of westerners and benefits they have brought to the rest of the world-of course his iconoclasm is part of a vogue that has persisted for close to 50 years. It must be close to its use by date.I also found MacDonald's labouring on Custer's neuroticism and childish temperamentalism excessive. I doubt he would have been made a brigadier in his 20's, or, after the Civil War, even been put in command of a battalion of cavalry, if he did not demonstrate maturity, leadership and strategic sensibility. MacDonald doesn't really give enough attention of the inferior quality of the weapons of the 7th cavalry compared to that of the Sioux and Cheyenne, and that Custer's detachment was outnumbered by up to 10 to 1. He tries too hard, like many apologists, to aggrandise the Indian victory. But at least he admits to the savage brutality of Sitting Bull.


For kiplomaniacs

by Jens Guld
(5/5)

There aren't many public school novels being written and read these days. Rowling's Potter series is an exception (and in my opinion they are not all that good). However if you are old enough to have read Tom Brown's Schooldays then the Flaashman series may be of interest. If you have enjoyed Kipling's Indian stories then Flashman is also worth a try.


Flashman in the Wild West

by JoeV "Reader"
(5/5)

The Flashman books are unabashedly politically incorrect, often hilarious, remarkably accurate historical novels - set in the 19th Century. Our hero - Harry Flashman, an officer in the British military - is a self-admitted scoundrel/rascal/cad/rogue - "his personal character was deplorable, his conduct abandoned, and his talent for mischief apparently inexhaustible." - and because of his "self-awareness" is very likeable. Harry is usually on the run from someone - the law, a jealous husband or some figure of authority - and during his travels meets up with historical figures and stumbles into historical events - usually of the military nature - inadvertently fighting the "good fight". And as can be surmised, Harry is never short of female companionship.The stories are told from the fictional "Flashman Papers", written by Harry in his twilight years, "edited" by the author - including "footnotes" which I encourage you to read - and which were "discovered" in 1966 - The "faux" authenticity only adding to the enjoyment in reading these books.In this volume, a two-parter which chronicles Harry's adventures in 1849-50 and 1875-76, we find our hero in the U.S., mostly in the Wild West, with a few sojourns in New York and Washington, DC. As the title suggests, "Flashy" encounters and becomes embroiled in the Native American "problem". In the first half of the book he leads a wagon train - actually a bordello on the move - from New Orleans to the west coast. In the second half Harry is enlisted - by President Grant - to aid in the "negotiations" with the Sioux Nation - the story climaxing with Custer's Last Stand.In the telling of the story the reader meets a cornucopia of historical figures - U.S. Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Crazy Horse, Spotted Tail, Mangas Coloradas, Kit Carson, Wild Bill Hickok and of course Custer - just to name a few. And Flashman - true to form - is not only in the midst of the all the action - he's the root cause in some instances - and of course he has more than a few romantic liaisons along the way.If historical novels, with more than a little humor, are your cup of tea, this volume and the Flashman series will suit you perfectly.


All of Flashman's adventures with American Indians.

by John A. Lefcourte
(4/5)

This is one of the better books by Fraser on Flashman's participation in American History. Flashman is involved with the Plains Indians and the Apaches, both before and after the American Civil War.


Flashman in America; among the better Flashman books

by lazza
(4/5)

The Flashman series is certainly a hit-and-miss affair. Harry Flashman, this mythical "Forrest Gump on the 19th century", by George MacDonald Fraser is the kind of character you love to hate. He gets all the women, gets in and out of all sorts of trouble, etc - he's certainly larger than life. The author cleverly uses Flashman as a vehicle to re-tell (not re-write) history for the masses. In 'Flashman and the Redskins' he succeeds admirably.'Flashman and the Redskins' is a actually two distinct books sewn together. The first half has Flashman on a wagon train from New Orleans to San Francisco. Of course impossible mishaps occur en route. But this gives the author the excellent opportunity to capture the essence of American expansion and Indian/Mexican/Amercian hostilities - I actually learned a lot. The second half takes place 25 years later at Custer's last stand. Again, a very educational exercise. And the link between these two stories is understood at the very end. It's unexpected and amusing.'Flashman and the Redskins' fortunately has little of the toilet humour found in other Flashman books. So instead of being grossed out by adolescent humour I was given a history lesson wrapped in an enjoyable story. Great deal!!As with the rest of the Flashman books, it is strongly advised to read the first of the Flashman series before proceeding to any of the others.


One of the most enjoyable episodes of the series

by Michael K. Smith
(4/5)

This volume is the second half of "Flashman's American Adventure," beginning as it does a few minutes after the end of _Flash for Freedom!_ Harry Flashman is stuck in New Orleans and wants badly to get home to England and he thinks at first he can prevail on the bawdy house madam who cottoned to him in the previous book to let him hide out at her establishment and then book him passage. But this is the beginning of 1849, gold has been discovered in California, and Susie is convinced she can make an even greater fortune by transporting her girls and her furniture to the Far West. Flashman ends up marrying her (bigamously, of course) and becomes the titular boss of her wagon train out of Independence, Missouri, bound for Sacramento. Actually, having met mountain men and famous frontier scouts and crossed paths with several sorts of Indians, they only make it as far as Santa Fe, which Susie decides is far enough. And Flashman is on his own again -- and to get the cash to continue his long-term escape, he commits an act that is remarkably callous and brutal even for Flashy. But he doesn't get far, being captured this time by Apaches and getting himself married for the third time. It's a good thing he has such a talent for languages! But he eventually accompanies Kit Carson to Wyoming and thence home.Then we jump to the second half of this story, a quarter-century later. One of the more delightful continuing themes throughout this series is Flashman's peculiar relationship with his wife, Elspeth -- gorgeous, brainless, devoted to her Gallant Sir Harry, and yet as completely unprincipled and lecherous as her husband when it comes to sex. In the early days, he couldn't say anything about it because she controlled the purse-strings. Now, in middle age, they've long since reached an accommodation. Besides, Harry has never actually caught her in flagrante. Anyway, Elspeth's craving for travel is the reason Flashman is back in America in 1876 to begin with, and at first he's outraged to discover that she's probably been off rolling in the hay with the great Lacotah chief (and his old acquaintance) Spotted Tail. But then he thinks, as always, "if I'm wrong and she's as chaste as the mountain dew, so much the better. If she's not, what's an Indian more or less?" Because Flashman has been recruited to take part in the U.S. Government's unenthusiastic negotiations with the Plains tribes in the wake of another gold strike, this time in the Black Hills, and Elspeth is along for the ride. And then his lecherous nature leads him to lend his name to a land development scheme in North Dakota -- and that will be his undoing, as Fate and Justice come back to bite him good and hard. The upshot is that Sir Harry is bound hand and foot in a Sioux tipi on the Little Big Horn when Custer and the 7th Cavalry show up.I've never been a Custer fan. As Flashman notes, he was quite a good cavalry brigade commander during the Civil War (when he also didn't have the leeway for independent action) -- but he was a terrible army officer, which is a somewhat different thing. And by the mid-1870s, his political ambitions were driving his self-aggrandizement to a point of such reckless disregard for reality that he had become a positive danger to those in his command. In fact, Flashman makes a number of comparisons between the Sioux campaign and the Crimea, regarding the lack of intelligence (in the military sense), the personal arrogance of those in command, and the sheer stupidity of not knowing when to quit. Plus, Gen. Terry was a nice man with not nearly the bloody-mindedness of Lord Lucan or Colin Campbell. Plus, face it, Custer was an idiot, so there. In any case, Flashman survives the massacre, as you knew he would, but he does so with the timely assistance of the very last person he could have predicted. And that leads to a rather sad ending.This is, I think, one of the best of the entire series (though I wasn't crazy about _Flash for Freedom!_). But that may just be me. I generally have to take the author's word for what the British Raj was like, but the Old Southwest before the Civil War is a time and a place in which I have taken a very close interest for a number of decades, both academically and personally. I've been to most of the places Flashman visits, I've read every one of the books he cites as sources in his footnotes, and I know a good deal about most of the major historical characters he meets, and I have to say Fraser has done a splendid job of it. He genuinely makes the New Mexico desert, especially, come alive. I agree that it's a beautiful and frightening place, depending on the circumstances. A terrific yarn. But I have to say it's a shame that the author died before he got around to writing of Flashman's adventures on both sides of the American Civil War.


A kinder, gentler Flashy? Probably not.

by mrliteral
(5/5)

Among fictional cads, few can top George MacDonald Fraser's Harry Flashman. Originally a villain in a 19th Century book called Tom Brown's Schooldays, Flashman was taken by Fraser and given a life far beyond that modest beginning. What makes Flashman such an outstanding character is that he is unredeemable: though he rarely aspires to acts of pure malice, he also never does anything worthwhile unless he can see a profit in it. He never repents from his minor evils and never really becomes a better person due to his misadventures.That said, the Harry in Flashman and the Redskins is almost a kinder and gentler version of previous incarnations. At least his general cowardice, greed and racism seem slightly less pronounced in this book (though it's still there). This book is the longest in the series thus far, but really it is a pair of connected shorter novels.The first part of the book follows right on the heels of Flash for Freedom!, which was a couple books ago (Fraser relates Flashman's tales in a non-chronological order). It is 1849, and Harry is accidentally an accessory to murder in New Orleans. Escape involves marrying a wealthy madame who is moving her brothel to California to take advantage of the Gold Rush (the fact that this is bigamy doesn't faze our hero one bit). From there, he will get entangled with nasty Indian hunters (How bad? Read Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian which features some of the same people and is one of the most relentlessly violent books I've ever read) and later some Apaches, including the future Geronimo.The second half of the book takes place in 1876. Now wealthy and regarded as a hero, Flashman is coerced by his wife into taking a tour of the United States. This will get Flashy mixed up with, among others, George Custer. Since Flashman seems to get in the middle of all sorts of historic battles, you can be sure he'll be at Little Big Horn. How he gets there involves some of his past sins coming to visit him in an unexpected way.As with the other books in the Flashman series, this is another historical novel with a sense of humor (however dark), something rarely found in that particular genre. It is also very well-written, offering a cynically alternative take on both historical events and historical figures (besides Geronimo and Custer, this novel also includes Ulysses Grant, Crazy Horse and Wild Bill Hickock among others). If you're new to this series, this book might not be the best place to start, but for existing fans, this is another fun read.


Flashman Continues to Amuse

by Steven M. Anthony
(4/5)

Our intrepid hero, Harry Flashman, is back for volume seven of the Flashman Papers, a narrative of the life and times of one of the most ne'er-do-well wastrels to ever grace the pages of a published autobiography.The first five Flashman novels were presented in chronological order. This "packet", like its immediate predecessor, acts to fill in a previous "gap" in the Flashman timeline. From a chronological standpoint, the adventures of this novel immediately follow those contained in Flash For Freedom, wherein we left Flashman in the port of New Orleans awaiting transport to England. Alas, poor Harry is instead destined for adventures in the American West of 1849-50. The story then skips over 25 years and picks up again with Flashman attending the wedding of his good friend Philip Sheridan in Chicago. From there, our friend Flash hooks up with General George Custer for a leisurely ride through the Black Hills of Dakota and into Montana.As in the previous Flashman novels, our Harry is revealed as the premier coward and opportunist of his era; faults which he quite willingly admits and even boasts of. Much as a prior day Forrest Gump, he has a way of finding himself among the most powerful and famous personages of his era, as he takes part in the great events of the period, in this case meeting a young Geronimo on the Santa Fe Trail, traveling with Kit Carson and riding among the American cavalry at Little Big Horn.Aside from uproarious fun and games, the Flashman series is set against historical events and actually serves as an educational experience. On to volume eight of the Flashman Papers.


Flash: History Of The Wild West

by The Wretched Reviewer With Malice Aforethough...
(5/5)

I normally don't go for fiction much anymore, but I'll make an exception for this excellent tale. Flashman is like the Forrest Gump of the plains. He is kidnapped by or meets the most famous outlaws, soldiers, native americans and politicians of the mid 1800's West, even participates in Custer's massacre. All carefully footnoted and fitted to the real history itself. Why this book has not been made into a movie I can't imagine, although Little Big Man seems to have been an attempt at it. The books that the author references form the better part of my library at the moment, and I still have a number of them left to read. Fascinating.
