- Beautifully illustrated with atmospheric paintings by renowned artists, The Red Badge of Courage is Crane's most famous and successful novel. It tells the gripping tale of a young private in the American Civil War who flees battle in fear and then longs to be wounded so that he'll have a 'red badge of courage'. Told with intense realism and exploring the themes of heroism, cowardice and maturity, the book was an immediate bestseller.
- Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's modern readers as it would have been when first published well over a century ago, the novel is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read and studied throughout the world.
- This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text.
