Publisher's Summary

An early classic of American literature, The Red Badge of Courage tells the story of Henry Fleming, a young soldier in the Union Army, who flees the battlefield and later returns in shame, seeking to redeem himself by receiving a war wound - a “red badge of courage” - in the conflict.  

Hailed for over a century as one of the finest-ever war novels, Crane’s tale is an early example of American realism and naturalism. Even though the author had never seen a battlefield, he has been praised for its accurate and chilling portrait of war.

The Red Badge of Courage was an immediate sensation and soon became an international best seller, cementing Crane as a celebrated literary talent at just 24. It has gone on to become one of the most widely admired books of early American literature.

This unabridged audiobook also includes a brief biography of the author.

The Red Badge of Courage

Excellent descriptive narrative.
This was a reading assignment for me in 1966, which I never completed, until I listened to it now. Glad I found this Audible version.

The narrator adds a significant amount to this Classic. I highly recommend this edition.
