After all, if war is a crime, then discowrld better to go after the criminals and stop it than a copper? Vimes’ insistence that he is not a military man sets up the premise that there is a difference between being a policeman and being a soldier, which plays out throughout the main plot.
For a policeman, there can be few things worse than a serial killer at loose in your city. Slant the slimy solicitor, Vetinari, Vimes, etc.
Lords and Ladies The Discworld Series: He chooses to pursue, but a fluke of temporal physics leaves him with the “Disorganizer” imp-powered planner, calendar, and all-around nuisance of the Vimes who stayed.

Refresh and try again. I always remembered the downsides and thought this was one of the worst Discworld nove Con: Then things take a sharp turn and go way off left-field and the Watch go invading like an army in a foreign country, Vetinari enlists Nobbs and Colon to do some spying whilst travelling in a submarine and the humour and high standards that are normally expected take a sharp drop.
Night Watch, Men at Arms, and Guards! It’s not just war that Pratchett sends up here. Nevertheless, things end badly for both parties, after the Prince disappears amid the chaos of a flaming embassy. You need to login to do this. I really enjoyed the first half of this, with the watch sort of blundering around Ankh Morpok, with hilarious results.

Vetinari takes the submarine and a tub Something wreathed with tentacles rises from the seabed between Klatch and Ankh Morpork, both of which apparently think they need a little more Lovecraftian landscapes in their lives.
That is to say, their curiosity was discwotld curious thing about them. Moram da jimgo, citajuci ovu knjigu kao i uobicajno u autobusu, vise puta sam bio cudno pogledan,usled cerekanja ili gromoglasnog smeha. Jing the fourth or fifth best book in my second favorite subplot of a large series and I still flew through and gobbled up every damn word. And once again he speculated that there was magic going on at some bone-deep level. The appearance of a mysterious island sets Morporkians against Klatchians, despite the fact that most Klatchians living in Ankh-Morpork are second- or third-generation residents, and Sam Vimes and the City Watch end up at the center of the conflict.
But really all of this is just an excuse for Captain Sam Vimes to get involved.
Jingo by Terry Pratchett book review
Lists with This Book. Anyway, I loved it.
Funny dialogue, especially between Colon and Nobbs: A chunk of rock suddenly appears in the ocean halfway between them and the nation of Klatch which seems to be the Middle East, though it sort of has a Turkish flavour to it — though for all we know it could simply be France — they don’t have pubs, they have beer gardens. The three also head to Gebra. And the storm at sea, with Vimes refusing to shorten sail or batten down.
