Product Description

“I enjoyed every word . . . terrifically funny.” P.G. Wodehouse

As usual the RAF top brass don't know what to do with maverick flying ace and well-known loose cannon Major Bartholomew Bandy.

They pack him off to a squadron where everything’s as smart as paint and the flying record barely registers, thinking it'll keep him out of their hair. But after a shaky start Bart gets a firm grip on things – one of those things being the adjutant, who jealously guards his own private and baroquely magnificent WC.

With old pal Dick Milestone, Bart reinvigorates the superbly turned out but demoralized pilots, who start doing some serious flying and very serious damage to the enemy, in the notoriously tricky new Dolphin Camels.

With the blackest of black comedy and seat-of-the pants escapades, Donald Jack’s series about a young pilot makes the War to End All Wars come roaring to life.

Praise for The Bandy Papers:

"Jack does more than play it for laughs . . . The mingling of humor and horror is like a clown tap-dancing on a coffin, but Jack is skillful enough to get away with it." Time Magazine

For those to whom Bandy is a newcomer, what a treat is in store.” Toronto Star

“Donald Jack has as light a touch with this fragile art as his hero has on throttle of a Sopwith Camel.” New York Times

“To know Bandy is to love him . . . you tend to gallop through and come hurtling out at the end panting for more.” The Sunday Sun

“Bartholomew Bandy is the most remarkable hero (or anti-hero) since Harold Lloyd impersonated the Freshman.” Chicago Tribune

“The Bandy Papers deserve to be read in private where insane giggling can go unnoticed.” Jack Granatstein

"I enjoyed every word . . . terrifically funny." P.G. Wodehouse

“Bartholomew Bandy is back. Cross, outrageous and lovable.” Vancouver Sun

5.0 out of 5 stars The best so far 11 April 2017
By Sid Nuncius - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the third volume of The Bandy Papers. I have enjoyed all of them and I think this is the best so far.

It's Me Again opens with Major Bandy being sent to take command of a dispirited squadron in France. It is remarkably well organised, in that even the coal is whitewashed, for example, but is achieving very little with extremely high casualty rates. Bandy manages to turn this model of efficiency into "the most disreputable bunch of bandits" with one of the highest success rates and the tale of how he does it is, as always, amusing and very exciting and with Jack's typical excoriation of incompetent and uncaring administrators and commanders. There follows a brief interlude of social farce in Canada, and then Bandy is sent off to Russia to intervene in the civil war there. Again, Donald Jack manages to produce a superb mixture of knockabout humour and genuine excitement in a tale which is also plainly well researched. This section reminded me a little of Hornblower, as Bandy's unorthodoxy and resourcefulness produce unexpected results.

This is a great read. It is full of excitement, genuine humour and one episode of real, heart-piercing poignancy, showing what a fine writer Jack was. He has really hit his stride in It's Me Again; the two preceding books are excellent in parts but to me rather patchy, while this is consistently very good. I would suggest reading the first two books before this one, but it's not essential. Whether you do or not, this is a fine book and warmly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bittersweet ending to the original trilogy 7 April 2000
By Ronald J. Collings - Published on
Not to give anything away, but a wonderful meld of the usual comedic grace with a poignant touch of tragedy. You'll be laughing and crying and enjoying throughout.
I'm fortunate enough to have the entire series. It's a pity most are out of print now. This series would make an excellent BBC - style television series.
