Just ordered the Fenwick Travers series by Raymond M. Saunders.
Each book, like the Flashman novels, is set during a particular event in American history, and follows the actions of the antihero Travers during these events that lead to his becoming an iconic American hero. Below is the name of each book and the events that the book focuses on.
Fenwick Travers and the Years of Empire: An Entertainment - The Boxer Rebellion in China (1995)
Fenwick Travers and the Forbidden Kingdom: An Entertainment - Moro Rebellion in the Philippines (1995)
Fenwick Travers and the Panama Canal: An Entertainment - Creation of the Panama Canal in 1903 (1996)
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story?
