Flashman and the Dragon (The Flashman Papers, #8)
Jun 26, 2010
Another fantastic episode, though yet another that moves Flashman away from cad toward more standard heroism. The story of the Taiping Rebellion and the Manchu emperor is all the more fascinating when viewed against modern China and its Maoist origins, because it all seems a lot less Communist and a lot more consistent with how China has been ruled for centuries.
