Item Description: Chapman and Hall 1951-1961., London, 1951. First editions of each volume in the author's acclaimed Sword of Honour Trilogy. Octavo, 3 volumes. Men At Arms is inscribed by the Waugh to fellow author, J.F. Powers, "For Jim Powers with admiration from Evelyn Waugh I bet you $1 you can't finish it." Officers and Gentlemen and Unconditional Surrender are both signed by Waugh. Each are near fine in very good to fine dust jackets. The Sword of Honour trilogy of novels about World War II, is largely based on the author's own experiences as an army officer and some critics ague the crowning achievement Waugh's career. Its central character is Guy Crouchback, head of an ancient but decayed Catholic family, who at first discovers new purpose in the challenge to defend Christian values against Nazi barbarism, but then gradually finds the complexities and cruelties of war too much for him. "Sword of Honour was the climax of [Waugh’s] career as a novelist . . . Here in his final work there run together the two styles, of mischief and gravity, that can be noted in his writing from the beginning . . . He may justifiably have thought of it as crowning his work" (Frank Kermode). Bookseller Inventory # 2815

Book two is Fine in a very nearly Fine, price-clipped dust jacket that has a small number stamped at the top of the rear panel and slight toning at the extremities. The third book also Fine in a very nearly Fine dust jacket with slight soiling on the rear panel.Praised as three of the finest World War II novels, the Sword of Honour trilogy follows Guy Crouchback, a British Roman Catholic who joins the fictional Royal Corps of Halberdiers. Based on Waugh's own observations in World War II, Crouchback serves as commentator for the ironic state of the British army and the bureaucracy of modern warfare. His character questions the place of romantic heroism in the modern world and ridicules the traditions of British society. Critic Edmund Wilson wrote that Waugh "is likely to figure as the only first-rate comic genius that has appeared in English since Bernard Shaw." Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

Item Description: London: Chapman and Hall, 1952, 55 and 61., 1952. First Editions. 3 volumes. Octavo. Bound in recent blue calf over marbled blue paper boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine; top edges tinted blue. With slipcase, bound in blue cloth. Bindings show extremely well, with negligible signs of shelfwear; vol three top edge somewhat faded. Internally clean and free from spotting; vol one has minor water staining to top and bottom edges, but this does not penetrate the text block. A very handsome set. In this trilogy of novels, we follow Guy Crouchback through the course of the Second World War. Somewhat resembling Waugh's own wartime experiences, for instance the Dakar expedition, the novels show Waugh at the height of his writing powers, scathingly satirical on the bureaucracy of modern warfare and earnestly charming on role and value of tradition - including Roman Catholicism.

In all, a handsome set, not often seen seen in such condition. Burgess 99, pp. 61-62. "Sword of Honour is not merely the story of one man's battles; it is the whole history of the European struggle itself, told with verve, humour, pathos and sharp accuracy." (Burgess). In fact, it was not planned as a trilogy. Following Officers and Gentlemen, the second installment, Waugh decided he had said all he had to say about the experiences of Guy Crouchback, heir of a declining aristocratic English Roman Catholic family who, like Waugh, participated in the Dakar expedition, served a stint with the commandos, experienced the débâcle on Crete, and ended the war in Yugoslavia. But Waugh later changed his mind and completed the sequence with Unconditional Surrender. In 1966, he pruned, revised and issued the trilogy as Sword of Honour (the title is drawn from the ceremonial sword, the "Sword of Stalingrad," made "at the King's command," to be presented to the Soviet Union in recognition of the sacrifices the Soviets made against the Nazis. Before being sent to Moscow, it was put on display in Westminster Abbey where long queues of people "suffused with gratitude to their remote allies" came to worship it. Guy Crouchback is unmoved and chooses not to visit, as he is distinctly not impressed by Joseph Stalin.) But, according to Burgess, "Most readers prefer to take the items severally and in their unrevised form." In the event, it is generally regarded as Waugh’s finest achievement in fiction, with its "fine war reportage and superb comic action." Waugh received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Men at Arms.
