Watching War Films with my Dad

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Al Murray's (AKA The Pub Landlord) muses on his childhood, where his fascination with history and all things war began. Have you ever watched a film with someone who, at the most dramatic scene, argues that the plane on screen hasn't been invented yet? Or that the tank rumbling towards the hero at the end of the film is the wrong tank altogether? Al Murray is that someone. Try as he might, he can't help himself. Growing up in the 1970s, Al, with the help of his dad, became fascinated with the history of World War II. They didn't go to football; they went to battlefields. Because like so many of his generation whose childhood was all about Airfix, Action Man, and Where Eagles Dare, he grew up in the cultural wake of World War II. Part memoir, part life obsession, this is Al Murray musing on what he knows best. And he's sure to tell you things about history that you were never taught at school.

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
