An extraordinary book for its time, Stephen Crane describes the intimate details and the innermost thoughts of a newly minted soldier on the front lines of a Civil War battlefield. With bullets whizzing about him, and thick smoke and corpses as a backdrop, Henry flees his first encounter with battle.

As he wanders about in the aftermath, he struggles with his shame and seeks rationalizations for his cowardice.

Critical Review of The Red Badge of Courage

Was he not the wiser for having fled a battle that was lost? Does not an animal flee a predator when sensing the predator is a superior force? But then Henry discovers that his battalion actually won the battle, and he returns to it after suffering a rather ignominious wound. But his comrades assume he was shot in the head and consider him a hero. Henry is transformed and goes on to fight courageously, earning the admiration of his comrades.

I find Crane's writing choppy and stilted. But it is perhaps this writing style that adds a sense of realism to his novel. The young Crane, who never saw battle and was writing more than a decade after the end of the Civil War, displays an astonishing talent for introspection. He creates with Henry Fleming a timeless protagonist in a coming of age novel that remains an American classic. An Exceptional Read!!! March 29, - Published on Amazon. This novel is the fictionalized story of a young man who enlists in the Federal Army in the midst of the American Civil War The boys illusions about himself and warfare are shattered during his first battle as he runs from battle in fear for his life.

The story recounts his struggle to come to grips with himself in order to overcoming his fears and redeem himself through heroic actions during a subsequent battle. Despite the fact the author never experienced combat I believe that the battle descriptions serve as a bench marks for all war novels. This book was a exceptional read, a true example of the great "Classic American Novel", truly one of the top novels ever written. I read it once before, while in high school, as part of an assignment designed to teach students about great novels.
