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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another burst of Milligan's explosive wit! 12 Feb 2001
Spike has produced another volume that will get the tears rolling down your cheeks!. How he managed to recall with such detail all the little asides that passed between him and his comrades-at-arms, is a source of great wonder to me. Here we are introduced to the manic Welshman, Secombe who went on to star with Spike in the Goon Show and on to greater things. All in all a wonderful mix of humour and pathos - well worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and eye opening. 8 Jan 2012
I was too young to appreciate Spike Milligan in his hay day and only have vague recollections of his humour, and 'The Goon Show' was before my time.I picked this up on holiday in a second hand book store because I have been wanting to read more humour. I wasn't disappointed, it is a very funny book. But it's also a fascinating insight into one man's ( one funny man's !) experience of the latter part of World War 2. This is part of a collection of memoirs written by Spike but the fact that I haven't read any of the others is irrelevant. Anyone interested in the war years would probably like this book, especially if you have a sense of humour. For those of a more prudish constitution beware there is some lively language.

I really liked this book and it kept my interest all the way. It has made me want to learn more about Spike and his history and the history of the Goon Show ! The book is funny, eye opening and educational. Best book of the year so far, but it's only number three !

This is by far my favourite out of all of the Spike war memoirs, I got my first copy age 15 and read it in a day, I grew up and forgot about it until finding it in a cupboard one day and picking it back up it didn't fail to make me laugh as it had the first time, I am only in my thirties but I was raised on the Goons so Spike Milligan was part of my childhood love this book!!

1.0 out of 5 stars awful condition 13 July 2011
By alt
This product said it was in good used condition. The pages are all falling out, making it hard to read and have any enjoyment out of. Very disappointed. This will make me very cautious when buying other books.
