Review-A-Day

"[W]hat Waugh effectively did, when it came to the fictional translation of his experience, was to bleach himself out of the picture. The trilogy records what he saw and heard and did, but he himself is not here. He stood aside, the grand manipulator conjuring order out of disorder and finding significance in apparent chaos....[T]he finest work of fiction in English to emerge from World War II." Penelope Lively, The Atlantic Monthly (read the entire Atlantic Monthly review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first volume of the author's Sword of Honor trilogy, which also includes Officers and Gentlemen and The End of the Battle. It portrays the events of the Second World War as seen through the jaded and melancholy eyes of Guy Crouchback, a middle-aged civilian who joins the Halberdiers, a venerable British army regiment, at the start of the fighting.

Review:

"[T]he impression of a rude, amazeless, savage stare that many of Mr. Waugh's early satires engendered, has been tempered to his increasingly sober view; without sacrificing his rich satiric vein, he has accommodated it to a serious personal drama." The New York Times

Synopsis:

The first volume of Evelyn Waugh's masterful trilogy about war, religion, and politics.

Synopsis:

Evelyn Waugh's novels of World War II, known collectively as the Sword of Honor trilogy, are now available in new trade paperback editions as part of Back Bay's ongoing program of reissuing Waugh's major works.
