UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER

(London: Chapman & Hall, 1961).

AN EVELYN WAUGH FIRST EDITION. The conclusion to Waugh's war trilogy, UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER brings to close the stories of the characters first introduced in his MEN AT ARMS and further told in OFFICERS AND GENTLEMEN. Like the other novels in the series it loosely parallels Waugh's own wartime experiences, but the title UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER is as much a reference to the characters' tangled personal lives as it is to the Allied demand made in the same period as which this novel is set. Item #31591

[iv] 311pp. A very fresh, bright and clean copy, both book and jacket near to very fine.
