About this product
- DescriptionThe most hilarious military career ever embarked upon, from Britain's funniest old soldier Spike Milligan's war memoirs are some of the most popular of all time. Re-mastered and issued in audio format for the first time ever since publication, this complete edition tells Spike's story all the way from enlistment in 1939 to his experiences in North Africa and Italy, his wounding and rehabilitation, his transition from soldiering to show-business and eventually to the formation of the Goons. The War Memoirs are an utterly original and outrageously subversive first-hand account of the Second World War, as well as a hilarious and fascinating portrait of the early life and formative years of one of the greatest comedians the world has ever kwn. Filled throughout with bathos, pathos and gales of ribald laughter, this is a barely sane helping of military goonery and superlative Milliganese. The War Memoirs consists of 36 wonderfully re-mastered CDs, preserving Milligan's genius for future generations. Audio quality varies.
