This is one of the funniest books I have ever read !
For anybody who appreciates the humour of "Private Eye" magazine, then this is an absolute must. The diary entries from an English householder from 1984, describing his steps to ensure that number 3 Cherry Drive becomes a true nuclear-free zone are just hysterically funny.
His agonies over whether to adapt an F-111 plane to spray his vegetable patch, or how to supply clean sheet to any captured Red Army soldiers will have you guffawing.
A typical extract:
"... I suspect the ground between the raspberries and the strawberries to be wide open to an attack to fast-moving armour."
Complete with genuine-looking letter responses from the Ministry of Defence, the Parachute Regiment, the House of Commons and Buckingham Palace (amongst others), this is just plain brilliant!! Buy this book !
