Jingo: A Discworld Novel - City Watch

Pratchetts writing is a constant delight. No one mixes the fantastical and the mundane to better comic effect or offers sharper insights into the absurdities of human endeavor. Daily Mail

Commander Sam Vines, the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, and their compatriots must fight for their country (or something like that) when Discworld goes to war in this wickedly funny Discworld novel from New York Times bestselling author Terry Pratchett.

No one would dream of starting a war without a perfectly good reason .

. . such as a strategic piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere known as Leshp.

It isnt much of an island that rises up one moonless night from the depths of the Circle Seajust a few square miles of silt and some old ruins. Unfortunately, this historically disputed lump of earth is once again floating directly between two proud lands, Ankh-Morpork and the city of Al-Khali on the coast of Klatch. And thats enough to ignite the inglorious international pastime known as war.

It is, after all, every citizens right to bear arms to defend their own.

Even if it isnt technically their own. And even if they dont have much in the way of actual weaponry. Pressed into patriotic service, Commander Sam Vimes thinks he should be leading his loyal watchmen, female watchdwarf, and lady werewolf into battle against local malefactors rather than against Klatchians.

But war is, after all, simply the greatest of all crimesand its Sir Samuels sworn duty to seek out criminal masterminds wherever they may be hiding . . .

and lock them away.

As two armies march, Vimes faces unpleasant foes who are out to get him . . .

and thats just the people on his side. The enemy might be even worse.
