The Military Philosophers, Paperback / softback Book

The Military Philosophers Paperback / softback


These titles are currently being reissued. There is a chance that you may receive the edition with the classic cover instead of the cover displayed here. The ninth novel in Anthony Powell's brilliant twelve-novel sequence, 'A Dance to the Music of Time'. As the war rumbles on, Nick Jenkins, now a captain, is working in military liaison.

When he receives the tragic news of the death of an old friend, it is an ever-present reminder of the way things used to be, especially when Widmerpool finds himself engaged again, this time to the notorious Pamela Flitton.

As the war's toll is mounting, Nick, like the rest of his compatriots, is weary of life in uniform and looking ahead to peacetime.
