Somehow, despite his advancing years and receding hairline, veteran airman Bart Bandy has plummeted through the ranks and got himself back in the air - he's given command of an RAF squadron in Normandy, shortly after D-Day. The Germans are on the run but not yet beat, and Bart soon has a very close encounter with notorious Luftwaffe ace Willy Strand.

Then the war does end and after a strange meeting with an enigmatic fellow called Kim Philby, Bart is invited to Yalta, with the august party that contains Churchill, Roosevelt, and Josef Stalin of course. But something's troubling him - wasn't Uncle Joe really pretty keen on rubbing out our old friend, once upon a time?

Exciting dogfights, beautiful Russian spies, and a seat-of-the-pants finale make a terrific last adventure for Donald Jack's maverick hero - sharper, blacker and funnier than ever.

What people are saying about The Bandy Papers:

"Reading can lead to involuntary bursts of loud laughter."

"Very descriptive, full of air combats and written with a fine eye for period detail . . . there is quite simply no finer book of its kind. Highly recommended."

"It is clear that Bandy likely should've been killed several times, but very likely the Grim Reaper was laughing too hard to hold his scythe straight . . ."

"Hysterically funny! . . . each book is another installment in the continuing saga of a Canadian and his adventures in war, the world, and women."

"I have yet to find another author with the wit and humor of Donald Jack."

Editorial reviews:

"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

"Funny. Very. Donald Jack has as light a touch with this fragile art as his hero has on throttle of a Sopwith Camel. Excessive corn is avoided in favour of wit and a delight in life." New York Times

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

"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

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