“The Trooper” is an iconic track by the British heavy metal band, Iron Maiden. The song’s protagonist appears to be a British soldier engaged in a battle against Russian forces. The song vividly narrates the unfolding battle. “The Trooper” was a standout from their highly successful 1983 album, “Piece of Mind,” which achieved an estimated 13.5 million in sales.

He is portrayed holding a tattered Union flag in one hand and a blood-stained sword in the other, set against a backdrop of fallen soldiers. His fierce countenance confronts the viewer.
