In Snakes and Ladders, the second instalment of Dirk Bogarde's carefully observed autobiography, we are taken from the challenges of his army training camp, through the horrors of war, to his glittering ï¿½ if often trying ï¿½ film career. We see the thoughtful boy finding his way alongside his fellow recruits, to emerge from the war a thoughtful man, shaped in many ways by his harrowing experiences.
