 Actually I think that book is so interesting because in this book , view  of love and war is the main think with  comedic .  Bluntschli is a Swiss solider who fall in love with Raina but she is already angst with Sergius. But sergius love louka. At last the comedy of the story turn into tragedy and story builds as we wonder how this love triangle will unravel. i think no one can know what hepped at last without finishing the story.


 The story begins in Riana’s room. Her mother, Catherine goes to tell her the good news that her fiancé, sergius. Soon their conversation gets interrupted by louka and she told that some fogies run thought the town. As the raina goes to the bed, she hears the sound of shots outside.  Suddenly a man enters her room and threats her. She saw a middle-aged man Covered with mud Blood and snow. The man tells her that he had run from her enime then Raina feels very for the slider, so she gives him a shelter in her room till he can run. At the end, she brings her mother. Raina called the solider as chocolate cream solider. Coming back from war Major Petkoff starts to talk about a Swiss solider both Catherina and raina get shocked. Catherine fined the chocolate cream solider coming to bring back Riana’s jacket .Petkaff and sergius go out seeing that man and welcome him as they know he is a Swiss solider.Louka tells about that night then Sergius get surprised and he makes love for louka and promises to marry her. Bluntschili also talks about his feels the same towards him and they intend to marry but the parents refuse as they thought that captain bluntschili is poor, but they find out he is the emperor of Switzerland.
