Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall, written and read by Spike Milligan.
At Victoria station the R.T.O. gave me a travel warrant, a white feather and a picture of Hitler marked 'This is your enemy'. I searched every compartment, but he wasn't on the train....
In this, the first of Spike Milligan's uproarious recollections of life in the army, our hero takes us from the outbreak of war in 1939 ('it must have been something we said') through his attempts to avoid enlistment ('time for my appendicitis, I thought') and his gunner training in Bexhill ('there was one drawback. No ammunition') to the landing at Algiers in 1943 ('I closed my eyes and faced the sun. I fell down a hatchway').
Filled with bathos, pathos and gales of ribald laughter, this is a barely sane helping of military goonery and superlative Milliganese.

You just don't get better

I won these books as part of my school leavers achievement award - everybody asked for record tokens - back in 1984 and to hear these wise-cracking books read by their incredible author is just bliss, hearing him crack up at his own jokes is a delight and reminds me how much richer we were with a Spike around, brilliant.

Brilliant!

Love the way Spike cracks up at his own reminiscences. Seeing as you're cracking up at the same time it feels like you're sharing the joke between you.
