DISCWORLD GOES TO WAR, WITH ARMIES OF SARDINES, WARRIORS, FISHERMEN, SQUID AND AT LEAST ONE VERY CAMP FOLLOWER.

As two armies march, Commander Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch faces unpleasant foes who are out to get him... and that's just the people on his side. The enemy might be even worse.

Jingo , the 21st in Terry Pratchett's phenomenally successful Discworld series, makes the World Cup look like a friendly five-a-side.

A fantastic entry into the Discworld series, hilarious if a little slow at about the 60% mark.

If you haven't read any of the Discworld books, I'd recommend starting with "Guards! Guards!," which is the first book about the City Watch.

While I've greatly enjoyed most of the Pratchett novels I've read, this one is my favorite. I laughed out loud at Nobby's adventures posing as a woman; as he and his fellow officers try to prevent a war. This is a great book!

Another great addition to the Disc World saga.

On the very brink of war sports can sometimes be the best way to get factions to agree to something.

When the lost island of Leshp rises from the sea, coastal neighbors Ankh-Morpork and Klatch both claim to own it. Push comes to shove and both of the superpowers are at war. Cmdr. Vimes of the City watch is caught up in a tale of spitting camels, magic rugs and a man who dresses like a woman.

Vimes's grin was as funny as the one that moves very fast towards drowning men. And has a fin on top.
