Overview

Arms And The Man' is a three-act play written by Bernard Shaw in 1920. An 'anti-romantic comedy', this play endeavours to attack the romantic notion of war by portraying a much more realistic illustration of its plights. A clever, witty, and subtle gem of theatre from the author of 'Pygmalion' that continues to hold up more than 100 years after its writing, this is a play that will appeal to those with an interest in portrayals of war, and one that makes for a worthy addition to any personal collection. George Bernard Shaw (1856 -1950) was an Irish playwright who co-founded the London School of Economics. We are republishing this vintage book now complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.
