Summary (From the publisher):

Arms and the Man starts with gunfire on a dark street in a small provincial town. The romantic and willful Raina is about to begin her true-life adventure by sheltering the handsome fugitive Bluntschli, enemy of her equally handsome fiance Sergius. The men may all be heroes - or fools since this is Shaw's comic view of Balkan chivalry - but the women are definitely more than their match.
