(From the publisher):
Andrew Undershaft makes bombs. It was not for this wickedness that Lady Britomart divorced him; but for a certain inconvenient stubborness in the matter of money. But Sarah and Barbara must be provided for. Neither of their beaux is likely to set the Thames on fire; and though Barbara might have made a brilliant career, she has thrown it all away to join the Salvation Army. There is nothing to be done but to consult Andrew. Can Major Barbara convert her father to the Salvation credo of 'Blood and Fire', so ironically identical to the creed of an Armorer? An hilarious and provoking fable of clashing moralities.
