The tradition of the "Holy Fool", stems in part from "Candide" and sort of limps through this exercise, using the Great War as a framework for its service comedy tropes. Not interesting. into the bargain, the title for this book edition is wrong, and reads Bartholomew BRANDY not "Bartholomew Bandy, which is the correct title. ( )

A humourous novel of the WW-I adventures of a military misfit. You do not even have to be a fan of military history to enjoy this one. Jack has dug below the surface and found the humour which existed in the day to day lives of the brave men in the front lines. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0771043805, Paperback)

It is 1916. Bartholomew Bandy, fourth-year medical student, decides that it is time to join the War. The prim young Canadian expects that he will have few problems remaining clean and virtuous. But he is aware that his bland, horse-like face drives people crazy, and that he has a certain tendency to be accident-prone. How will the war affect him, and vice versa? The realities of trench war at the front provide a contrasting backdrop for his adventures, as he blunders into contact with all sorts of people, both fictional and historical (the King, Lester Pearson, and Winston Churchill). Three Cheers For Me was first published in 1962, to wide critical acclaim. This expanded version first appeared in 1973, to launch the series now known as The Bandy Papers.
