'It's all over. Von Arnheim has surrendered, and he's very angry.'
'This could mean war....'
The third volume of Spike Milligan's laugh-a-line account of life as a gunner in World War Two resumes on the eve of victory in North Africa. Now Britain's looniest war hero must combat some of the direst threats a soldier has ever faced - boredom ('Christ, I just thought of Catford'); a cold ('in this weather?' 'Yed.'); moving camp ('it's a sort of Brighton with camels'); relaxing on the beach ('life was golden, and we were the assayers'); moving camp again ('we're already somewhere else'); a visit to Carthage ('it's terrible, it's like Catford'); and a perilous encounter with the gloriously endowed Mademoiselle Villion ('Help! Massage,' I said weakly').
Against the odds they survive and are sent at last to Italy to be killed....
