Title: Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall
Author: Spike Milligan
Page Count/Review Word Count: 144
This book is the first of three books in Milligan’s war diaries series, and it offers a fascinating glimpse into life on the home front during the Second World War. Milligan writers in an idiosyncratic stream of consciousness style which people have dubbed ‘Milliganese‘ due to its uniqueness, and whilst it can sometimes be difficult to understand what’s happening if you’re not paying full attention, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Here, we just deal with Milligan’s experiences in England, but he does make it to mainland Europe in later books in the series. I picked the next book up from the book exchange at our local arts centre; I can’t wait to get started!
