  2. Better to order them by historical chronological order, as several of the books refer to previous events in Flashman's life. The historical order also gives a better sense of world events in the 19th century, and of Flashman's character as he matures from young rascal to.. old rascal...

  5. Thanks for the help all. I didn't know that GMF had other works. It certainly makes finding a good present a lot easier. :)
