Henry is a fresh, green soldier during the Civil War. This short work of fiction details his first few engagements as part of the Union army, following him through moments of sheer terror and panic, confidence, distress, hopefulness and, ultimately, pride. I selected this title as part of a long-term goal to read four traditional "classics" each year. Overall, it was okay, though I have to admit I likely enjoyed the accompanying unrelated short stores in this edition more than the titular work itself. At the very least I now know what "the red badge of courage" actually refers to.
