Jingo
by: (author)
4.02 405
Throughout history, there's always been a perfectly good reason to start a war. Never more so if it is over a 'strategic' piece of old rock in the middle of nowhere. It is after all every citizen's right to bear arms to defend what they consider to be their own. Even if it isn't.

3.5 Ankh-Morpork Goes to War
I have to admit that I'm quite surprised that I have now read 21 of the Discworld books.
