About Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh (28 October 1903 – 10 April 1966) was an English writer of novels, biographies, and travel books; he was also a prolific journalist and book reviewer. He is recognised as one of the great prose stylists of the English language in the twentieth century.

Men at Arms Synopsis

Men at Arms is the first novel in Waugh’s Sword of Honour series, the author’s look at the Second World War. The novels loosely parallel Waugh’s wartime experiences.

Guy Crouchback is the heir of a declining aristocratic English Roman Catholic family who has spent his thirties at the family villa in Italy. He decides to return to England at the beginning of the Second World War. He joins the army and trains as an officer and we then follow his various adventures throughout the first year of the war.
