A journalistic law

… it’s a journalistic law, you see, that heroes can never do anything ordinary; when Flashy, the Hector of Afghanistan, beats a reluctant retreat, there must be an army howling at his heels, or the public cancel their subscription.

Flashman and the Mountain of Light, pp.335-36, Fontana Paperback edition, 1991.
