Dumbledore’s Army: The Dark Side of the Demob


Characters Locations Magic Canon Events Things Creatures Essays
The Harry Potter Canon



Demob is the abbreviation for demobilization, which means "ceasing military operations or withdrawing troops".


The word demob may refer to Dumbledore's army never being part of a military interference, so it would mean a group of ineffective fighters. Also, the word seems to refer to "the mob", which is "a large crowd of people, especially one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble or violence", according to the Oxford dictionary.

Also, note the date the book is supposedly published: on Harry's (and Jo's) birthday!
