The Red Badge of Courage (Used Book) - Stephen Crane
Going off to war, Henry Fleming is eager to participate in the excitement of battle, but utterly unprepared for what he encounters. Rather than fighting, he spends his days marching with men who are unlike any people he has met before. His first exposure to a dead body is more fascinating than horrifying. Yet when he is finally faced with battle, Henry is unsure if he can actually find the courage to fight.
