'At Victoria station the R.T.O. gave me a travel warrant, a white feather and a picture of Hitler marked 'This is your enemy'. I searched every compartment, but he wasn't on the train'. Spike Milligan's on the march, blitzing friend and foe alike with his uproarious recollections of army life from enlistment to the landing at Algiers in 1943. Bathos, pathos and gales of drunken laughter, and insane military goonery explode in superlative Milliganese.

First read this series of books when I was in the RAF back in '85 and they are excellent. This is the first in a series of 4 about his time from joing the Royal Artillery through the war years. Milligan is down to earth and tells his of his escapades with true British wit. If you are in the Forces, or have been, then you will enjoy this book, and the other three without a doubt.

 Fantastic read!

An absolutely brilliant read, by an absolutely brilliant writer!!

I have loved Spike Milligan since I was a child, and discovered "On The Ning Nang Nong". Looking for books to reminisce, and perhaps allow my daughter to glance at, I discovered that not only was he previously a soldier, but that he wrote about being one. Immediately bought the book, and read it faster than I have probably read any book before!

This is a brilliant book, with a lot of humour entwined (obviously). I fairly often smile at humourous books, but rarely actually laugh out loud - something this book made me do a good half-dozen times!! Very good wit explaining a very difficult time. There are of course sad moments too, particularly on the last page, but for the most part this is a very down-to-earth, bright-side-of-life book!

Definitely looking forward to "Rommel: Gunner Who?" arriving so that I can continue this adventure into the War!
