The Red Badge of Courage Book Review

Probing the thoughts and actions of men in the battlefield fighting for themselves and their brothers around them, and telling a story from a soldier’s point of view, is Stephen Cranes The Red Badge Of Courage. Considered one of the best war novels of all time Stephen takes the battle a union army private, Henry, is fighting and not only describes the carnage and the destruction of the war but the psychological changes of his young self becoming a man through his actions and thoughts.
Taking place at the battle of Chancellorsville, Henry is taken on the adventure of war. His adventure is divided into three parts, his state of mind before battle, his initial war experiences, and henry’s experiences away from his regiment. Consisting of 24 chapters of thrill and outstanding psychological portrayal, The Red Badge Of Courage by Stephen Crane.
