Product Description

About the Author

Spike Milligan was born at Ahmednagar in India in 1918. He received his first education in a tent in the Hyderabad Sindh desert and graduated from there, through a series of Roman Catholic schools in India and England, to the Lewisham Polytechnic.

He then plunged into the world of Show Business, seduced by his first stage appearance, at the age of eight, in the nativity play of his Poona convent school. He began his career as a band musician, but has since become famous as a humorous scriptwriter and actor in both films and broadcasting. Spike received an honorary CBE in 1992.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Having read the 4 war memior books I then read this compressed version and relived the war according to Milligan. The man is a genius!! Although seemingly trivial you become aware of the effect war has on a mind. All the favourite/funniest stories are there and for those of you who want a quick introduction to the mind of Milligan this is the book to read. Well thumbed I am now on my 2nd copy. A book you can read and re-read and still find bits you missed before.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a brilliant account of Spike's time in the army during WWII. It is always absorbing, sometimes really sad and often extremely funny. The only problem is that some of the editing is a little heavy-handed - I wanted more of the original books. Nevertheless, still great.
