Arms and the Man is one of George Bernard Shaw's most glittering comedies that takes place during the 1885 Serbo-Bulgarian War. It tells the story of a young Bulgarian woman, Raina, who encounters Bluntschli, a mercenary Swiss soldier for the Serbian army, when he bursts into her bedroom and begs her to hide him. Arms and the Man , a mixture of wit and humour, presents a satire on the conventional values about war, love, social class, and morality.
