Under Two Flags (novel)
At the beginning of the novel, Bertie has strong homoerotic ties to his best friend and servant.
Bertie's "inconvenient" admirers are erased, with the result that Bertie is converted to a person whose identity is socially acceptable.
The book has also served as a basis for a number of stage and film adaptations.
