Overview

Following its initial appearance in serial form, Stephen Crane�s The Red Badge of Courage was published as a complete work in 1895 and quickly became the benchmark for modern anti-war literature.

Although the exact battle is never identified, Crane based this story of a soldier�s experiences during the American Civil War on the 1863 Battle of Chancellorsville. Many veterans, both Union and Confederate, praised the book�s accurate representation of war, and critics consider its stylistic strength the mark of a literary classic.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a little-known section entitled The Veteran, which depicts Henry Fleming as an old man discussing his experiences in the Civil War with his grandson. Additionally, a glossary and reader�s notes are provided to help the reader understand the language of 19th century America.
