I just finished the first book in the Flashman series, oddly enough named Flashman. Its an older book, written in 69, but its still a goodie. Its the tail of a young scoundrel who joins the Royal Army in the 1840s and thru acts of cowardice, self-preservation, treachery, and sheer luck manages to participate in some of the greatest battles of humanity and lives to tell a dashing story of bravery (while all the witnesses to truth conveniently expire). Its pretty entertaining. While he is fictional, the events he is placed in a very real. I am a big history buff, and I recommend it to any other history buffs.
