Description
This first novel of the Sword of Honor trilogy introduces us to Guy Crouchback and describes his period of training for a commission in the Halberdiers. Guy is a lonely, frustrated man, and the regimentówith its proud traditions, its esprit de corps, discipline, and taxing dutiesórestores to him a vitalizing sense of dignity and purpose. Together with Officers and Gentlemen and Unconditional Surrender, the book details Guy's exploits in World War II on the battlefield and the home front. Deft and amusing, sober and appalling, these volumes form not a history but a timeless portrait of a heroic task undertaken by individuals somewhat less than heroic, and the trilogy was deemed "the one genuine masterpiece to come out of World War II" (New Republic). Evelyn Waugh produced 16 novels, including A Handful of Dust, Scoop, and Brideshead Revisited (all three of which were selected by the Modern Library as among the 100 best novels of the 20th century), as well as several volumes of short fiction, biography, memoir, and essays. This fine trade paperback edition, part of a uniform series of Waugh from Back Bay, includes a readers' guide and supplemental material.

"A highly entertaining novel about some of the 'preposterous' experiences of the Second World War.... Waugh's sharp wit and sure touch of satire are always at work."óAtlantic Monthly
