Men at Arms; Officers and Gentlemen and Unconditional - Waugh, Evelyn - 1952. 
Chapman and Hall, London; 1952, 1955 and 1961 - Octavo. First printings. The three volume trilogy of Evelyn Waugh's military novels, where he spent the war from start to finish as a junior officer engaged chiefly in ordinary regimental soldiering. He recounts the phases of a long love affair, full of vicissitudes, between a civilian and the Army. Men at Arms began with its hero inspired by illusion. Officers and Gentlemen ends with his deflation. Unconditional Surrender explains the mysterious origins of Ludovic, which were left doubtful before and completes the disillusionment of the hero, Guy Crouchback. A handsome and fine ser, all bound in blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, one tiny bump to one corner, in fine unclipped showing only very minute wear to head of Men at Arms. No names or plates, only one small bookseller's ticket to rear of one volume. Simply, an exceptional set. [Attributes: First Edition]
