Back to those haunting days in Italy in 1944, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, with lava running in great red rivulets down the slope towards us, and Jock taking a drag on his cigarette and saying, "I think we've got grounds for a rent rebate."
The fifth volume of Spike Milligan's unsurpassed account of life as a bombardier in World War Two sees our hero dispatched from the front line to a psychiatric hospital and from there to a rehabilitation camp. Considered loony (and "unfit to be killed in combat by either side"), he becomes embroiled in his own private battle with melancholy.
But it is music, wit and a little help from his friends - including one Gunner Harry Secombe - that help carry him through to his first stage appearances....

A classic read.
A classic read read by an utter genius.
Spike Milligans reading of his own work brings emotion and madcap humour like only he could.

Truly Laugh Out Loud
I have been listening while walking the dog and finding myself unable to suppress the laughter. Having read these volumes a number of times it is a joy to hear them read by Spike.
