Fifty Years of Terry Pratchett

Men at Arms

Published 11th November 1993

The town of Ankh-Morpork is in big trouble and the City Watch is desperate for a few good men to protect it. But all they’ve got are the dwarves Corporal Carrot and Lance-constable Cuddy, the troll Lance-constable Detritus, Lance-constable Angua, who is believed to be a woman and, worst of all, Corporal Nobbs, who has been disqualified from the human race for shoving! 

These underdogs need all the help they can get, for they’ve been given only 24 hours to clean up the war-torn town.
