About the Book

The story of the greatest British sit-com and its enduring appeal.

When we laugh at Dad's Army we laugh at ourselves, and nearly fifty years after it was first broadcast, millions of us are still laughing – whenever and wherever it is repeated. With contributions from the people who planned, produced and performed the programme, and material drawn from the BBC archives, acclaimed author Graham McCann has written the definitive story of a very British comedy.

This edition does not include any illustrations.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

'A hugely entertaining read.' Daily Telegraph

'A splendid new "biography" of the comedy.' Observer

'I knew I would enjoy Graham McCann's book because he started exactly where I would have started: with the best joke a British sitcom has yet devised.' Roland White, Sunday Times

'Excellent. All but essential.' Omer Ali, Time Out

'More than a showbiz yarn. McCann's engaging book pays homage to the great catchlines ("They don't like it up 'em") and the great punchlines ("Don't tell him, Pike!").' Jonathan Sale, Independent

'Irresistible.' John Dugdale, Literary Review
