Evelyn Waugh

Sword of Honour

Penguin Classics

€ 22.95

Waughs own unhappy experience of being a soldier is superbly re-enacted in this story of Guy Crouchback, a Catholic and a gentleman, commissioned into the Royal Corps of Halberdiers during the war years 193945. High comedy in the company of Brigadier Ritchie-Hook or the denizens of Bellamys Club is only part of the shambles of Crouchbacks war. When action comes in Crete and in Yugoslavia, he discovers not heroism, but humanity.

Sword of Honour combines three volumes: Officers and Gentlemen, Men at Arms and Unconditional Surrender, which were originally published separately. Extensively revised by Waugh, they were published as the one-volume Sword of Honour in 1965, in the form in which Waugh himself wished them to be read.
