In "Jingo" Terry Pratchett is actually waging a bitter and deeply sad one-man war against nationalism, racism, religious fundamentalism, territorialism and all kinds of nasty-ISMS invented by men and he does it the way he knows best: by making you laugh out loud and think! And there is no better way to do it, in my book anyway. I came to Terry Pratchett late which meant I have this lovely, long line of books to graze through. Pratchett's Discworld is just our world, but amplified by the presence of witches and wizards, and Death is a character, and a lovely old duffer with a charming, if prickly, granddaughter.
Terry Pratchett is an internationally acclaimed author who specializes in fantasy books. He was motivated to write more books after seeing how well his first book had been received by his audience. He was born Terrence David John Pratchett in 28th of April 1948 in Beaconsfield Buckinghamshire, England. He was the only child of David and Eileen Pratchett. He spent his early life in Bridgewater, Somerset where he sat for his eleven plus exam and passed. He got a place for himself in John Hampden Grammar School due to his brilliant performance. He wrote two other science novels shortly after, The Dark Side in 1976 and the Strata in 1981.

Terry Pratchett is a phenomenon unto himself. A weathercock has risen from the sea of Discworld and suddenly you can tell which way the wind of blowing. A new land has surfaced and so have old feuds.
The enemy might be even worse.
In the 21st Discworld novel, Discworld goes to war, with armies of sardines, warriors, fishermen, squid and at least one very camp follower. The enemy might be even worse. Neighbour. ah. People’d live for ages side by side, nodding at one another amicably on their way to work, and then some trivial thing would happen and someone would be having a garden fork removed from their ea.
It's up island, rising out of Discworld's sea, uninhabited and claimed by both cities.
Under International Law this situation clearly falls under the ancient doctrine of Acquiris Quodcumque Rapis ("You Get What You Grab"). And everyone wants to grab. Besides, the Al-Khalians may have invented algebra, astronomy and alcohol, but hey don't have a word for lawyer, and how can you talk to people like that?
Since there's no basis for negotiation, it's down to the long-suffering Commander Vimes of the City Watch to deal with a crime as awful that there's no law against it.
It's called war.
Ankh-Morpork has been at peace for a century, and so has Al-Khali. But now there are people on both sides who think it's time to give was a chance, and will happily help it on its way with a few murders...
Modern war needs modern weapons. Unfortunately, Ankh-Morpork got rich making and selling them to Al-Khali. But it's just possible that salvation lies in the hands of the great inventive genius Leonard of Quirm, whose sketchbooks are filled with devices for killing people, flying through the air, and weighing cheese.
Maybe it's in his boat tat travels under water--Leonard calls it a "Going Under-The-Water-Safely Device", or "metal sinking fish thing" for short. (Just because he's an inventor doesn't mean he's good at naming stuff.) But this is carrying something else--a device that so powerful that it can finish any war.
But don't be alarmed. It's fantasy. It all happens on Discworld, where greed and ignorance influence human behavior, politicians pursue was for selfish ends, and perfectly ordinary people occasionally act like raving idiots.
A world, in short, totally unlike our own.
