Description
Information
Guy Crouchback is now attached to a Commando unit undergoing training on the Hebridean Isle of Mugg, where the whisky flows freely and H. M. Forces have to show proper respect for the omnipotent Laird. But the high comedy of Mugg is followed by the bitterness of Crete - and the chaos and indignity of a total withdrawal or surrender.
'Waugh's characters have inexorably established themselves among the enduring fictions... In this respect Waugh is in direct line with Shakespeare and Dickens.'
Clive James, New York Review of Books
