The Civil War, with brother pitted against brother, is perhaps the most traumatic event in U.S. history. Of all American novels, The Red Badge of Courage most powerfully captures the sights and sounds of that conflict, and the emotions of those who fought. Seduced by dreams of military glory, Henry Fleming enlists in the Union Army, only to discover that real warfare is radically different from his fantasies. We see every incident from Henry's point of view--from his anxiety before battle and confusion and terror of actual conflict--giving us a particularly vivid sense of a soldier's experience. A truly classic work of American literature. The world's greatest works of literature are now available in these beautiful keepsake volumes. Bound in real cloth, and featuring gilt edges and ribbon markers, these beautifully produced books are a wonderful way to build a handsome library of classic literature. These are the essential novels that belong in every home. They'll transport readers to imaginary worlds and provide excitement, entertainment, and enlightenment for years to come. All of these novels feature attractive illustrations and have an unequalled period feel that will grace the library, the bedside table or bureau.
