The Red Badge of Courage

The Red Badge of Courage

by Stephen Crane
Henry Fleming had no idea how horrible war really was. Attacks come from all sides, bullets fly, bombs crash, men dying everywhere. Facing his own fear, Henry has a choice: flee for his life or stay with his regiment. An indespensible coming of age and war classic.
