Publisher's Summary

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 whisky 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 ("the finest work of fiction in English to emerge from World War II" - Atlantic Monthly), which also comprises Men at Arms and Unconditional Surrender.

Critic Reviews

"Christian Rodska takes on the individual and decidedly eccentric voices of all the commandos stationed on the Isle of Mugg during WWII. From the bellowing of the general hiding under the billiard table during the bombing, to the fluted voice of Laird’s wife at dinner, the dialogue is a hoot.... Rodska reads brilliantly - if there were an Oscar for excellence in audio performance, Rodska would be a top contender." ( AudioFile)
