Overview

THE END OF THE BATTLE is the final volume of Evelyn Waugh's masterful trilogy about war, religion and politics that began with MEN AT ARMS and continued with OFFICERS AND GENTLEMEN.

The end of WW II finds Guy Crouchback, once again in England, radiating despair from behind his desk. But then his training as a commando and his facility with Italian land him one last assignment--liaison work, not in Italy, but with Tito's forces in Yugoslavia.

"[Waugh's] military trilogy has much to recommend it. The wit endures; at full strength wit is rage made bearable, and useful." (The New York Times)
