    George MacDonald Fraser (1925-2008) based the idea of Flashman on the original character created by Thomas Hughes in Tom Brown’s School Days, published in 1857. The Flashman character was a fictionalized look at the 19th century British Army, but Fraser was always praised for his historical accuracy in portraying real world events. By the time of his death in 2008, Fraser published twelve Flashman novels, including: Flashman (1969), Royal Flash (1970), Flash for Freedom! (1971), Flashman at the Charge (1973), Flashman in the Great Game (1975), Flashman’s Lady (1977), Flashman and the Redskins (1982), Flashman and the Dragon (1985), Flashman and the Mountain of Light (1990), Flashman and the Angel of the Lord (1994), Flashman and the Tiger (1999) and Flashman on the March (2005).
