    Like the other two books I found this mildly entertaining but if you consider this trilogy runs to over a thousand pages you do find yourself realising that Olivia Manning though a good writer doesn't have an awful lot to say about life She lucks out to some extent in that she finds herself living through a moment of history that has few chroniclers But there's also the strong suspicion she's seeing it all through a distorted lens Manning clearly takes all her material directly from life without much of a filter Little attention is paid to architectural artistry She throws in everything she experienced as if one thing is as relevant as another She also repeats herself a lot A habit ex pats who have a tendency to repeat the same daily cycles over and over resort to Essentially these books are about living in an ex pat community as much if not than they are about the second world war Having had some experience of the ex pat community in Florence I sense as communities they haven't changed much through the years The members tend to stick tightly together as a means of keeping everything foreign at bay They rarely learn the language Which means the language they have is staunchly self protective and neurotic And this is the world Olivia Manning's cast of characters form Poor Harriet Manning's heroine has far to fear from the benumbing mediocrity of her company than the Nazis No wonder she's always moaning First and foremost her manchild husband who like perhaps like every other character in this book is running away from reality rather than fascism I realised at the end of this trilogy that it's doubtful if a single one of Manning's English characters would even be capable of producing a child Such a band of hapless misfits might provide a high dosage of whimsical humour but I'm not sure they provide much reality The Rumanians first and then the Greeks are little than local colour in Manning's books Forget empires the English as represented here would struggle to organise a jumble sale You almost begin to sympathise with the Germans certainly a new and disturbing experience though clearly unintended Perhaps it would be better if this old world of unearned and condescending entitlement ceased to exist Which is why this is one of the most eccentric literary depictions of WW2 as if it was some kind of social experiment which all Manning's characters dismally fail

    Review of The Balkan Trilogy What first attracted me to this trilogy was the history woven into the story WW2 in Bucharest and Athens The trilogy starts in the fall of 1939 and ends in the spring of 1941 You watch the fall of first Romania and then Greece No you don't watch you live it along with a group characters that you come to know intimately A close group of both friends and foes The central protagonists are Harriet and Guy Pringle but they are by no means the only characters There are many and it takes a while to really get to know each of them What is important to stress is that it is the story of these people that is the central focus of the book Their relationships are what the book is about History is merely the backdrop The writing is superb Consistently Manning draws places and people and events with a perfect string of words You are there and see through the eyes of the characters What each character says and thinks and does is what they would say and think and do There is humor Other times you get annoyed at the choices made Each character is complex There are no simple solutions; what is described is real life As stated in an earlier review the six books of the Balkan and Levant Trilogies are based on the author's own experiences In 1939 she married a British Council lecturer posted in Bucharest Romania and subseuently traveled with him to Greece Egypt and Palestine as WW2 engulfed EuropeHarriet's view of her husband of herself and the other characters gives food for thought I could relate to Harriet very easily I came to understand her and the compromises she made Is the author speaking of her own relationship with her husband? Reading this book you cannot help but pose this uestion The book is exciting Why? Because you come to care for the characters Because you understand them and don’t want harm to come to them I guess you could say I am a bit annoyed On completing this the third book of the The Balkan Trilogy I don't feel the story is complete Unfortunately the The Levant Trilogy which follows the Balkan Trilogy is not available in audio format I have reuested this at Audible emphasizing that the same narrator should be used ie Harriet Walter I believe that listening to this may actually have improved my appreciation of the story Through Walter's narration each character gains an even fuller identity You should meet Prince Yakimov as Walter intones his dialect He is a wonderful crazy character I dare you to read this book and not fall in love with him He is a Russian emigre but not any Russian emigre He traipses around in a long fur lined coat which he tells everyone umpteen times his father got as a gift from the czar What happens to him will bring tears to your eyes In the beginning you smile at his antics his storytelling his drinking his borrowing and insatiable hunger By the end you love himI highly recommend the Balkan Trilogy for its history for its character portrayals and for its vivid depictions of people and places and events If it were only to record the historical events it could have been much shorter but in this book the point is to understand people and the choices they make One should read the entire trilogy from start to finish in one goThe Balkan Trilogy 1033 pages 4 stars with 5 star audiobook narration by Harriet Walter1The Great Fortune my review Spoilt City my review and Heroes The Levant Trilogy 576 pages

    This is the third in Olivia Manning’s Balkan Trilogy and follows on from “The Great Fortune” and “The Spoilt City” The first two volumes of the trilogy saw Guy and Harriet Pringle in Bucharest – newly married and coping in a Europe newly at war This book sees Harriet travel to Athens alone and awaiting Guy’s arrival Many of the characters who populated the first two novels also appear here including Dubedat Lush and Prince Yakimov Indeed so isolated is Harriet when she arrives that Yakimov previously despised by her as an unwanted presence in her life and her apartment now becomes a friendly face in an unknown cityIt is fair to say that Guy Pringle is one of the most frustrating characters in any novel and his arrival as expected does not improve Harriet’s life noticeably Politically naïve emotionally warm and gregarious; Guy spends his time thinking the best of everyone despite the reality of his situation and unwilling to face reality Guy had worked in the English department of the University in Bucharest but once in Greece he finds that Dubedat Lush and Professor Pinkrose are unwilling to help Guy with work – as he once helped them Harriet is constantly frustrated by her husband’s unwillingness to see anything but the best about everyone and begins to feel and neglected as these books continue Indeed this novel sees her attracted to Charles Warden as she feels her marriage means little to Guy who has time for everyone but her in a life taken up by providing entertainment for the troops and pouring his attention on students and friendsAs with the other novels this is largely based on Olivia Manning’s experiences as a young wife during wartime and paints an evocative image of life during that period Harriet believes she has escaped the danger and upheaval of Bucharest for a better life in Athens However as optimism in Greece turns again to disuiet rumour and encroaching danger you worry that Harriet will never find her feet in a constantly unstable Europe – mirrored in her rocky unsteady marriage She wants certainty and safety and had hoped to find that within her marriage but now she is unsure whether Guy is the man to provide that for her This story continues in “The Levant Trilogy” consisting of “The Danger Tree” “The Battle Lost and Won” and “The Sum of Things” Although I have read these books before man years ago I am enjoying re reading these novels very much and look forward to reading on

    The final instalment of the Balkan Trilogy was my favourite Married Guy and Harriet have escaped from Romania and arrived in Athens Against the backdrop of Greece's early military success against Italy and final defeat once Germany invaded the couple continue to struggle with their marriage friends and career Manning's affection for Greece shines through and gives the book a warmer glow then the abhorred Romanians There is an undramatic verisimilitude to the preoccupations of the characters during the war period of course they on a day to day basis are interested in how their husband sabotages himself or where the next meal is coming from In stripping her characters of a clichéd nobility the reader receives a deeper insight in what the war meant for ordinary civilians Finally there is just that little bit of plot allowing one to get that engrossed in the events A slog of a read but one which eventually provided rich reward

    I give this trilogy four stars overall because of the uniue perspective it offers on the approaching catastrophe of WWII as it was experienced by middle class people in Europe at the time Although I admit I had not heard of Manning until recently it seems that her novels are largely fictionalized memoirs and contain her first hand observations of the people and events she writes about At any rate like Harriet the main character in the Balkan Trilogy novels she was married to an English instructor assigned to various foreign postsIn the first two novels in the series Harriet and her increasingly disappointing husband begin their married life in Bucharest and watch it slowly fall to fascist militias controlled by Hitler They escape at virtually the last moment to Athens where Friends and Heroes is set At first their sojourn in this beautiful ancient city is refreshing although Harriet's principal refreshment is flirtation with a handsome British officer But the Nazi noose slowly tightens around Greece as well and despite the heroic resistance of the Greek army siege like conditions finally give way to blitzkriegI can understand why some reviewers felt the pace of these novels was too slow and meandering with too few sympathetic characters and too much attention to the heroine's personal life I too think that a couple hundred pages could have been edited out of the trilogy On the other hand the personal details and the understated description of the big international events also made the story credible as an historical account We often wonder why people living in Europe in the 1930s didn't see things coming or just get out in time Manning's novels suggest it was because people then were just like people now absorbed in their personal lives and hoping for the best until hope became denial The novels also demonstrate how the war developed slowly with isolated acts of violence and political coups that could be ignored or explained away And the final chapters of Friends and Heroes which are some of the best in the whole series convey the overwhelming nature of the full Nazi onslaught when it finally came


  6. says:

    Following on from the events in the previous novel Harriet Pringle is newly arrived in Athens her husband Guy has stayed behind in Bucharest Rumania – where the Pringles have been living since their marriage at the start of the war is under German occupation and most of the ex pat community have left or are in the process of leaving Harriet is in a fever of anticipation waiting for Guy to arrive in Athens Yakimov and his sable lined greatcoat is already in Athens and despite previously having disliked him Harriet has become much fonder of him and it is Yakimov who first brings Harriet news of GuyGuy arrives in Athens much to Harriet’s relief – who is eager for them to visit the Parthenon together – but in typical Guy fashion he wants to immediately find himself something to do Always rushing about somewhere – although not always where Harriet wants to rush off to – Guy can’t easily sit stillFull review


  7. says:

    I adore Olivia Manning's Balkan and Levant Trilogies and highly recommend them as great literature and history I have re read them so often that I have lost count In this third installment I become reconciled with my annoyances toward Guy and Yaki and appreciate the complexities and vulnerability of Harriet even The panoply of characters are deftly drawnManning is marvelously skilled at depicting the extra ordinariness of ordinary people I recently read some rather nasty comments Lawrence Durrell made about Manning contemporaneously but I feel Olivia Manning is the one history favourswhile he is also in print her novels are much widely read and appreciated


  8. says:

    The final instalment sees Harriet and Guy in Athens where they meet up again with the inveterate sponger Yakimov The cloak and dagger stuff is still going on amid expat intrigue and love affairs The series as a whole is great like some sort of papery soap opera happening in your hands as the whole continent slides closer to the brink


  9. says:

    This third book of the series gets into the real situation in the Balkans during WWII This is a story that so on many of us never encountered the pushing out of all the British and the slower encroachment of German forces into the Balkan states Looking forward to the next trilogy to pick up with these characters as ND this story


  10. says:

    The last book in this trilogy moves the action to Athens where things are as uncertain as they were in Rumania There are new and old friends all waiting for something to happen as food gradually becomes scarce It's hard to convey how much I've loved these books and their very human and personal approach to war
