Henry Fleming, a raw Union recruit in the American Civil War, is anxious to confirm his patriotism and manhood - to earn his 'badge of courage.' But his dreams of heroism and invulnerability are soon shattered when he flees from the Confederate enemy in his first encounter and then witnesses the horrible death of a friend. Caught in the nightmare of war, Fleming is finally driven by anger and confusion to a true act of courage. This edition also includes Crane's acclaimed short stories 'The Open Boat,' 'The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky,' 'The Blue Hotel,' 'The Self-Made Man,' and 'The Veteran,' as well as a section of selected poetry.
