The Bandy Papers

Donald Jack’s blackly humorous Bandy Papers are classics of their kind. Opening with Bartholomew Bandy’s life in Canada shortly before leaving for Europe and the First World War, the “memoirs” follow his adventures through the war as a flying ace and into the 20s and 30s, with the last books carrying him into World War Two. When not busy avoiding death, winning medals, or oscillating through ranks like a yo-yo, Bandy spends his time driving his superior officers into apoplectic fits.
