An early classic of American literature, 'The Red Badge of Courage' tells the story of private Henry Fleming, a young soldier in the Union Army, who flees the battlefield and later returns in shame, seeking to redeem himself by receiving a war wound - a “red badge of courage” - in the conflict.

Hailed for over a century as one of the finest war novels ever written, Crane’s tale is an early example of American Realism and Naturalism and, despite the author never having seen a battlefield, has been praised for its accurate and chilling portrait of war.

The Red Badge of Courage was an immediate sensation and soon became an international bestseller, cementing Crane as a celebrated literary talent at just twenty-four. It has gone on to become one of the most widely read and admired books of early American literature.

This unabridged version of the text also includes a brief biography of the author.

A wonderful, heartbreaking story brought to life by an excellent narrator. Kudos to Mr. Walsh!

Book was well written and really gave you the sense of being part of the war but lacked a complete ploy and was often slow in progression.
