This time, Terry Pratchett takes on the tricky aspect of war. But there's a heavy dash of humour, and cynicism and a harsh look at our own world. Leonard of Quirm plays a vital role, Sam Vines is up to his neck in all sorts of trouble, and we get to see a very rare side of the Patrician. Not to mention 71-Hour Ahmed. Some serious moments, and it's a very amusing, if dark, read. Five stars, and recommended.
