Sword of Honour's attributes include: prose any writer would kill for, drop-dead hilarity, pitch-perfect dialogue and eternally-memorable characters. Waugh observes the war with wryness, charity, acidity, acuity and anger. Because of that mixture, the book is prophetic in a very decent English sort of way. Perhaps the most all-round pleasing -- and effortlessly brilliant -- book of the 20th century.
