This collection of Classic War Memoirs provides readers with some fascinating and brilliant snippets and insights into life during World War II. From the memoirs of comic surrealist Spike Milligan, one of Britain’s most celebrated and talented writers of all time, it showcases the sense of humour that kept soldiers going through these dark days. World War II shaped human destiny, but there was plenty of untold action and these seven books focus on the scurrilous, bizarre and hilarious military career that was embarked upon by any bombardier of the 56th Heavy Regiment, Royal Artillery.

The Spike Milligan collection. If you like Spike Milligan and you haven’t read these books then I can absolutely recommend that you buy them. I read the first two books many years ago but had never bought the later books. I’m glad that I did as I had forgotten how funny they were.
