I decided to start reading in my leisure at the early age of 50. Classics were the best bet, since I did not want to waste time. This book is very good because it described the fear of dying and not know if running in the face of battle was going to be the end of your life. Fear was highly described in the heat of the battle. This is a great book and I am glad I read it since I currently have a son in the armed forces.

As someone who has never actually been in combat I cannot confirm what many say about 'The Red Badge of Courage' i.e. that it presents one of the most true pictures of what that experience is. I can however say that the whole story of Henry Fleming's initial great dreams of heroism, his terrible surprise at the revelation of his own cowardice in battle, and his redemptive return to the field of battle is one which rings true. There is something very clear, pure and American in the writing of Crane. And this work has a quiet power and authenticity. An American classic.

Crane's classic descriptions of the battlefield's sights and sounds paint a lasting picture of the Civil War battlefields. His words resonate today whether you talk of Iraq or Afghanistan. Although geographically different, the thick smoke, smell of decomposing bodies, and the bloodbath's of battle are still the same. The fear is palpable as he describes the valiant soldiers and their reaction to battle. He really makes the reader understand the psychological turmoil that war brings as well as the camaraderie that develops among soldiers in the heat of the battle. The symbolism in the Red badge of Courage would make this a great choice for a classic book club discussion.
