A delightful, hilarious romp through WW1 with a most unlikely, bumbling hero, Bart Bandy. Witty and laugh-out-loud funny, this clever tale is nonetheless well rooted in fact, and thus manages to convey some of the harsh realities and inept leadership of that brutal war. I agree wholehearted with historian Jack Granatstein's comment: "The Bandy Papers deserve to be read in private where insane giggling can go unnoticed." I'm really looking forward to reading more of the Bandy books!
The second book in Donald Jack's Bandy papers series, this is the novel that convinced me to read more of his works.

Set during the last year of the First World War (1914 - 1918), I have to say I found this book to be funnier than both the later installments in the series, and than the previous entry ("Three Cheers For Me"): indeed, this book was the cause of me getting some funny looks when I burst out laughing in work one lunch-time ...

This 1974 Stephen Leacock Award winning book is fun. The second in Jack's Bandy Papers collection, it features the fictional WWI war experiences of a Canadian soldier in the British air force. In addition to being clever and funny, it does a good job of capturing the more mundane experiences of the war and the sometimes slapstick quality of life in those dire times.
Possibly the best book he ever wrote. The bathroom scene is still a comedy classic. Read this book.
