Publisher Description

This is the story of the Civil War through the eyes of Henry Fleming, an ordinary farm boy turned soldier. Marks a departure from the traditional treatment of war in fiction as it captures the sights and sounds of war while creating the intricate inner world of Henry. Probes the personal reactions of unknown foot soldiers fighting unknown enemies. Henry Fleming is motivated not by courage or patriotism but by cowardice, fear, and finally egoism, and events are filtered through his consciousness.

Classic, mix of boring and intense

Written in 1895, so an interesting 30-year post-civil-war read. Spoken dialogue and narration can be pretty hard to follow at times. It’s hard to get a good mental picture of what’s going on, except when death and corpses are being described. Some battle scenes are clear, some are confusing. In the end though, it’s a thought provoking book about a soldier’s journey through fear, shame, and success.

I had to read this book a long time ago, but I was not mature enough to understand. Definitely a great read as an adult.

The Red Badge of Courage

Excellent book, first time I read it I was a teen and didn't truly understand it. Now, 50 plus years later, I understand it very well having had similar experiences myself while serving in the military.
