This collection of Classic War Memoirs provides readers with some fascinating and brilliant snippets and insights into life during World War II. From the memoirs of comic surrealist Spike Milligan, one of Britain's most celebrated and talented writers of all time, it showcases the sense of humour that kept soldiers going through these dark days. World War II shaped human destiny, but there was plenty of untold action and these seven books focus on the scurrilous, bizarre and hilarious military career that was embarked upon by any bombardier of the 56th Heavy Regiment, Royal Artillery. They are based on Milligan's very real war experiences in both North Africa and Italy.

Spike writes in a manner which makes me feel as though I could have been there with him. The reader is taken on a journey which combines "laugh till you cry moments"; the antics of the squaddies (not for the easily offended); moments of poignancy and the inevitable sadness that comes with war.
We know Spike was a peace and nature loving man who had his problems with depression. He definitely had a different perspective on life. So to have recalled his experiences and describe events they way he does is, in my opinion, brilliant.
What comes across to me is that the friendships he formed, his humorous observations and his music helped him through those difficult days. Thoroughly recommended.
