This is book number 31 in the Discworld series.


"Wickedly satirical . . . nothing short of brilliant." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The 31st entry in Sir Terry Pratchett's internationally bestselling Discworld series about the art of war and the brave women who wage it. This new recording is narrated by Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd), Bill Nighy (Love Actually; Pirates of the Caribbean) and Peter Serafinowicz (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace).

War has come to Discworld. The homes and businesses throughout the duchy of Borogravia limp along, doing the best they can without their men, sent to fight their age-old enemy. Polly has taken over the lion's share of responsibility for the running of her family's humble inn, The Duchess. Her beloved brother Paul marched off to war almost a year ago, but it has been more than two months since his last letter home, and the news from the front is bad: the fighting has reached the border, supplies are dwindling, and the brave Borogravians are losing precious ground. So the resourceful Polly cuts off her hair and joins the army as a young man named Oliver. As Polly closely guards her secret, she notices that her fellow recruits seem to be guarding secrets of their own.

A novel that explores the inanity of war, the ins and outs of sexual politics, and why often the best man for the job is a woman, Monstrous Regiment is vintage Pratchett in top form.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Monstrous Regiment is a standalone.
