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" (comprising ‘Men at Arms’, ‘Officers and Gentlemen’ and ‘The End of the Battle’), which chronicles the fortunes of Guy Crouchback.
"Deft and amusing, sober and appalling. And it offers, incidentally, one of the most graceful salutes of many seasons to the flexibility of the English language." - New York Times.
"An often very funny book." - Time.
