Title: Monty: His Part in my Victory
Author: Spike Milligan
Page Count/Review Word Count: 128
This is my third Spike Milligan book and my second of his war diaries, and while I have enjoyed his work so far, I have also found that it’s pretty heavily tainted with the casual racism of the time. If you don’t like racial slurs (who does?) like those words beginning with N and W, or if you have a problem with the casual usage of “the C word”, you’ll probably struggle at times.
Sometimes his humour fell flat too, probably because of the overreliance on the slurs, but bits of it were interesting. I’m glad I read it.
