One of the great war novels, The Red Badge of Courage describes the first experience of front-line combat through the eyes of a young recruit, Henry Fleming, in one of the battles of the American Civil War. Under the stress of battle, Fleming is forced to face strong, conflicting emotions, ranging from bravado to terror as the conflict ebbs and flows. Written some 30 years after the war, when Stephen Crane was only in his mid-20s, its inimitable truth makes it just as relevant today. Download and start listening now!

    " I decided to re-read this book, having last read it for class in the 1970s. It is still a tough read, and not enjoyable back then. This time around I admire the author's view of war; what can be defined as courage, fear and heroism. It also gives a trench level view if the horrors of war, and how devastating a human tragedy the Civil War was. "

    " Crane's extreme-realism was misleading at times. Nevertheless, it's a good story about war and courage. "

    " I swear this book was the precursor to Catch-22. Unfortunately, like Catch-22, the novel is repetitive and not necessarily the most entertaining read. If you're a history buff you'd probably enjoy this... "

    " This book is a great depiction of the civil war. It had great descriptive battle scenes, as well as insightful moments into the soldiers minds. "
