Fueled by idealism and eagerness to contribute to the war effort, Guy Crouchback becomes attached to a commando unit undergoing training on the Hebridean isle of Mugg, where the whiskey flows freely and respect must be paid to the laird. But the comedy of Mugg is soon followed by the bitterness of Crete, where chaos reigns and a difficult evacuation must be accomplished.

Officers and Gentlemen is the second novel in Waugh’s brilliant Sword of Honor trilogy recording the tumultuous wartime adventures of Guy Crouchback, which also comprises Men at Arms and Unconditional Surrender.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Deft and amusing, sober and appalling. And it offers, incidentally, one of the most graceful salutes of the many seasons to the flexibility of the English language.”

    New York Times

  • “An often very funny book.”

    Time

  • “A very good novel indeed.”

    New Republic

  • “For Waugh, in this series which may well be his magnum opus as well as the outstanding British novel to come out of this war, is a far gentler commentator than in his earlier books, and Crouchback, his central character, is his spokesman—a gentleman, a romantic, a Roman Catholic.”

    Kirkus Reviews

About the Author
Author Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966) was born October 28, 1903 in London, England. After short periods as an art student and schoolmaster, he devoted himself to travel and to the writing of novels. His novels are unusually highly wrought and precisely written. Those written before 1939 may be described as satirical. During World War II his writing took a more serious and ambitious turn. Waugh also wrote travel books.
