Publisher's Summary

Undergoing training on the Isle of Mugg, Guy Crouchback is now attached to a commando unit where the ministry whisky flows freely and HM Forces have to show proper respect to the Laird. But the comedy of Mugg is followed by the bitterness of Crete: the indignity of withdrawal or surrender.

Brilliantly written by the complete 20th century master of the novel – and perfectly read by narrator that brings each of the characters alive
