By 1941, after serving in North Africa and Crete, Guy Crouchback has lost his Halberdier idealism. A desk job in London gives him the chance of reconciliation with his former wife. Then, in Yugoslavia, as a liaison officer with the partisans, Crouch becomes finally and fully aware of the futility of a war he once saw in terms of honor.

Unconditional Surrender is the third 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 Officers and Gentlemen.

Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966), whom Time called "one of the century's great masters of English prose," wrote several widely acclaimed novels as well as volumes of biography, memoir, travel writing, and journalism. Three of his novels, A Handful of Dust, Scoop, and Brideshead Revisited, were selected by the Modern Library as among the 100 best novels of the twentieth century.

Reviews

"The quality of the writing is, throughout, superb, and confirms my belief that Mr. Waugh is the best living writer of English prose."โ€”Bernard Bergonzi, Guardian "What Parade's End, Ford Madox Ford's great work, was to World War I, Evelyn Waugh's 'Sword of Honour' trilogy is to World War II."โ€”Herbert A. Kenny, Boston Globe "The wit endures; at full strength, wit is rage made bearable, and useful....Waugh's military trilogy has much to recommend it."โ€”Gore Vidal, New York Times Book Review "The importance of Unconditional Surrender lies not so much in itself (beautifully organized and written and hypnotically readable as it is) as in its contribution to the pattern of the trilogy....The complete work now clearly emerges as Mr. Waugh's main achievement to date, and the one piece of English fiction about the 1939-45 War which is certain to survive."โ€”Times Literary Supplement Expand reviews
