4.5 Fantastic read! SkyesMum | 09/01/2013 | See all SkyesMum's reviews (86) 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!
