Publisher's Summary

A voice is calling across the land, "Bombardier Milligan."
"Bombadier Milligan is dead," I replied in a disguised voice.
The voice replied, "Then he's going to miss his breakfast."
The fourth volume of Spike Milligan's legendary account of his time in the army during World War Two begins as he and his regiment land in sunny Italy in 1943 ("The ship touched the beach very gently, so gently I suspect it's not insured").
After a bout of sandfly fever, from which he soon recovers ("I'm ready to be killed again"), our plucky hero is piddled on by a farm dog ("Mussolini's revenge?") before forging his way inland towards the enemy and the sound of guns ("We're getting near civilization"), where matters suddenly take a dark turn ("I was not really me any more")....

great book

Laugh so much at times I was crying, be warned try not to be driving.

It's quite sad at times with how Spike suffered with the shell shock.

brilliant

Spike Milligans accounts of WWII are some of the most humorous and harrowing that I have had the pleasure to enjoy. The fact that it is Spike reading the audio book greatly adds to the experiance
