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!

  You will be laughing out loud at this book....guaranteed.

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.
