From the creator of Dad's Army, Jimmy Perry, a fascinating and highly entertaining autobiography packed full with the people, stories and experiences that inspired many of the characters and scenes from this much-loved comedy.
But it doesn't just stop with Dad's Army. Jimmy Perry is also responsible for the other hugely popular British comedies It Ain't Half Hot, Mum, Hi De Hi and You Rang, M'Lord? Stupid Boy is Jimmy's story from his early years growing up in London, his experiences in the Watford Home Guard, as a Gunner in Burma, as a member of the Royal Artillery Concert Party that travelled the Indian subcontinent entertaining the troops, as a Redcoat in Butlins, at RADA, in show business and much, much more. Read Jimmy's fantastic stories as he relates, as only he can, the amazing real-life experiences that inspired the key ingredients of the comedies we have all come to know and love. Funny, witty and highly enjoyable, and fully illustrated with over a hundred fascinating and exclusive photographs, Stupid Boy is a must for all fans of Dad's Army, Jimmy Perry, and his work.
