The main type of conflict is man vs self, this is an internal conflict in which Henry has to overcome his fear and choose between running away from battle (which he does) and fighting like a man and hero (which he also does). Henry biggest struggle is the choice between the instinctual desire for survival and the desire to be a soldier and man.
