The story of Guy Crouchback, whose career as an officer in the royal corps of Halberdiers is chequered and strewn with blunders and botched encounters. It is also rich in such indelibly funny characters as Colonel Ritchie-Hook and Apthorpe.

Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966) was born in London and educated at Oxford. He quickly established a reputation with such social satirical novels as DECLINE AND FALL, VILE BODIES and SCOOP. Waugh became a Catholic in 1930, and his later books display a more serious attitude, as seen in the religious theme of BRIDESHEAD REVISITED, a nostalgic evocation of student days at Oxford. His diaries were published in 1976, and his letters in 1980.
