      Oddly, Bandy is at his best when he is at the front, running down officers, stealing cars, and generally causing mayhem for the brass and Germans alike A large part of this book was set at general headquarters, which was somewhat less interesting Still would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good laugh.

      I received a free electronic copy of this historical novel from Netgalley, the estate of Donald Jack and Farrago, Prelude Books in exchange for an honest review Thank you all, for sharing your hard work with me This book was originally published in 1973 by Doubleday The second of a series titled The Bandy Papers, this book is completely stand alone I loved the insights into protocol involving flight training in WWI England, and I particularly loved Bart Bandy and his lady love, Katherine Lewis I [...]

      Enjoyed this than the first one Very funny in places but with an underlying sense of the stupidity of the war, especially the brass hats who seem to have no common sense Jack s prose is marvelous, and the flying scenes are very well described giving an idea of what it must have been like to go up in aircraft made from little than wood and wires.I m reading the third installment now and I have to say, they just seem to get better Can t wait to find out what Bandy gets up to next

    4. Sid Nuncius on said:

      I am enjoying the Bandy Papers series Like the first volume, I found That s Me In The Middle a bit variable but never less than enjoyable and exceptionally good in places.Bandy spends the first half of the book as Top Brass in London, giving Jack an opportunity for some well aimed potshots at official incompetence and infighting, treacherous politicians and so on There is also the usual smattering of pure farce and Bandy s endearingly hopeless social and romantic escapades This part is well writ [...]

      A really fun read, Bandy is now in full bloom as a character and the fun, and seriousness mix wonderfully At times approaches the best farce, and quite incredible the interweaving of fact and fiction.

      Great readVolume 2 is as funny as volume1.A laugh out loud caper of epic portions.Our hapless hero Bandy causing chaos where ever he goes.

      I find the bantering getting a little monotonous I think I m finished with series.

    8. David on said:

      The second book in Donald Jack s Bandy papers series, this is the novel that convinced me to read 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

    9. Gabriele Wills on said:

      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 of the Bandy books

    10. Scott Harris on said:

      This 1974 Stephen Leacock Award winning book is fun The second in Jack sBandy Paperscollection, 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 mundane experiences of the war and the sometimes slapstick quality of life in those dire times.

    11. Michael on said:

      Possibly the best book he ever wrote The bathroom scene is still a comedy classic Read this book.

    12. Francis on said:

      Parts of the book made me physically laugh out loud Very entertaining

    13. John on said:

      Bandy at his best worst Gets in deep shit but comes out like a rose Don t know why I waited 40 years to reread this series On to number 3 of the Bandy Papers.

    14. Rita Parker on said:

      I didn t find it as funny as the first one but still killer.
