Sword of Honour

Sword of Honour

By: Evelyn Waugh (author), Angus Calder (Introduction Author)eBook


Waugh�s 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 1939�45. High comedy � in the company of Brigadier Ritchie-Hook or the denizens of Bellamy�s Club � is only part of the shambles of Crouchback�s 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.
