Last night I read Spike Milligan's Adolf Hitler: My Part in his Downfall. This is the story in hilarious form of his call-up and early army service as a gunner. The next volume, Rommel? Gunner Who? wasn't available in the library. I have read this several times already so I went straight on to Monty: His Part in my Victory, and finally I read part of Mussolini: His Part in my Downfall. Each of the books has laugh-out-loud moments, often featuring the quick-fire repartee of Milligan and his army mates. Black humour abounds, along with a great sense of camaraderie. The tone gradually darkens however and not just because of the ongoing war. Milligan was a sufferer from terrible depression and there are hints of a breakdown to come.
