Pratchett, Terry  
Discworld #28: Monstrous Regiment
War has come to the Discworld - again. And to no one's great surprise, the conflict centers on the small duchy of Borogravia, which has long prided itself on its aggressiveness. Since her brother Paul marched off to battle, Polly has been running her family's inn - even though the revered national deity has decreed that female ownership of a business is an Abomination (with, among others, oysters, rocks, and the color blue). To keep the inn in the family, Polly must find her brother. So she cuts off her hair, dons masculine garb, and - aided by a well-placed pair of socks - sets out to join this man's army.
