The Red Badge of Courage

by Stephen Crane

First appearing as a newspaper serial in 1894, The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane quickly became a Civil War classic. The novel tells the story of Henry Fleming, a teenage private with boyish dreams of the glory of war, who then struggles with fear and disillusionment as war’s life-and-death realities set in.

This enduring story puts a human perspective into the destruction and chaos of war, and is considered to be a wonderfully realistic portrayal of the conflict’s battles. Ernest Hemingway described the book as "one of the finest books of our literature."

The book made Stephen Crane, at the age of 24, an overnight success. This Civil War novel went through ten editions in the first year. Since its initial publication, it has never been out of print.

Crane’s words and Künstler’s images will be sure to last for years to come. Nineteen full color Images from seventeen Mort Künstler paintings:

War Between the States
The Wreckage of War
Salute of Honor
The Waiting War
Veterans of Gettysburg
Dilger at Gettysburg
