By Bernard Shaw
During the last days of the Serbo-Bulgarian war, a mercenary soldier named Bluntschli takes refuge from pursuing Bulgarian forces in the bedroom of Raina Petkoff, an idealistic Bulgarian girl engaged to marry another man. Raina helps Bluntschli escape that night—but then the war ends, the men come home, and the mysterious Bluntschli unexpectedly returns to the Petkoff household. In one of his most brilliant and clever romantic comedies, Shaw examines both the futility of war and the hypocrisies of the human heart in ARMS AND THE MAN.
