Publisher's Summary

Guy Crouchback, determined to get into the war, takes a commission in the Royal Corps of Halberdiers. His spirits high, he sees all the trimmings but none of the action. And his first campaign, an abortive affair on the West African coastline, ends with an escapade which seriously blots his Halberdier copybook.

Men at Arms is the first book in Waugh’s brilliant trilogy, Sword of Honour, which chronicles the fortunes of Guy Crouchback.

    Story
    "Wonderful performance of a wonderful book"
    If you could sum up Men at Arms in three words, what would they be?

    Class, loyalty, misunderstandings.


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rodska’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but I remember him from radio & T.V. He sounded completely authentic with all the many & varied accents without losing any of the drama or meaning. Really impressive!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I wanted to perpetuate it.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "An old favourite enhanced by good reading."

    Christian Rodska does a splendid job performing Evelyn Waugh's trilogy, with "Brideshead Revisited" his best books by far. CR sounds quite different from his Falco persona! (Was desperately missed from that series.)He gives a wide range of voices and accents, even in French, although Italian pronunciation off once or twice.
    The humour and absurdity of Guy's wartime experiences offset Waugh's intrinsic snobbery and fogeyism, and Guy in any case is more sympathetic than his creator was alleged to be - Waugh, not the Almighty!)
