Award-winning novelist and screenwriter William Boyd brings Sword of Honour, Evelyn Waugh's classic trilogy of the Second World War, vividly to life in this epic two-part drama starring Daniel Craig, Megan Dodds and Leslie Phillips. 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.
