As I said, it's got it all, but I want to focus in on what sets this story apart from others out there. What's distinctive about this story is that there's a mystery of what motivations are driving the nation of Galviren to make war against the nation of Suomen. This question, of how to think about what would motivate one country to make war on another is explored through the actions of the characters in the story.
The differences in war strategy on the Suomilen side make up a good portion of the story's dramatic conflict, and arise out of more than just different conclusions about what their enemy's motivation is. They arise out of more than tactical preferences for caution vs boldness. They arise out of more than mere personal differences. After all, the Suomilen leaders are united in their wish to end the war. It gets down to having different ways of thinking about the question of what motivates support for war in general. Their answers to that question develop into entire approaches towards their end goal of achieving peace. The Suomilen leaders come into conflict in their approaches to discovering the motivations of the enemy, understanding what it means for them to be motivated to make war, and most importantly, deciding what needs to be done to get them to stop.
But, as I said, this is only one of the many conflicts which arise in this story. There's a whole war full of conflict, full of battles and intrigue. This aspect about war motivations jumped out at me because it's a subject I'm interested in, but there's no shortage of other aspects to love!
