A Stupid Boy
By

Rating
The real Dad's Army and other stories from the creator of the hit TV series. From the creator of Dad's Army comes the wonderfully written and evocative tale of the life and adventures that inspired the hit TV shows he would go on to create. Highly entertaining and funny, A Stupid Boy gives fascinating insights into Perry's Dad's Army and his other much-loved British comedies including It Ain't Half Hot, Mum and Hi-De-Hil: the real-life individuals who inspired the characters and events, and behind-the-scenes stories - including how Dad's Army came about, and how it was very nearly dropped, never to appear on our screens.
