Sword of honour Evelyn Waugh's wartime epic

Waughs 3 novels on the second World War have been well adapted by Boyd for the screen. His semi-autobiographical hero, Guy Crouchback (Craig), goes into the war thinking it is a crusade against evil, only to discover it is the ideal environment for liars, cheats, cowards and phonies. His corrupt acquaintance, Trimmer (Coyle), becomes a war hero by accident. Guy's wife Virginia (Dodds) is a man using tramp. A slice of British decadence showing good men dying while evil men flourish. A fine anti-war movie which is a biting satire on the emergence of the world we live in today.

  • "At the heart of the story is Guy Crouchback's (Craig) heroic quest to fight for a deep moral cause and to reclaim his manhood after a shattering divorce from the society beauty Virginia Troy (Dodds). But his encounters with the absurd reality of life in the British Army, strewn with bureaucratic blunders, military debacles and indelibly funny characters, prove to be more of a challenge than facing the enemy itself."
