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.

The Bandy Papers in their entirety are worth the read, with 7 volumes in total. Each book offers it's own flavour and commentary, and each is outrageously funny.

The first volume, however, is by far the funniest thing I have ever read. Three Cheers for Me starts off slow, but it is the building impression of Bandy that makes the book so terrific when he hits the front lines in WW1. Between my mother and I, we were in tears laughing about Bandy's botched exploits all around Europe. I would thoroughly suggest this series to anyone looking for a story with adventure and comedy that can teach you something new along the way.
