About the Author

First published in 1895, America's greatest novel  of the Civil War was written before 21-year-old  Stephen Crane had "smelled even the powder of a  sham battle." But this powerful psychological  study of a young soldier's struggle with the  horrors, both within and without, that war strikes the  reader with its undeniable realism and with its  masterful descriptions of the moment-by-moment riot  of emotions felt by me under fire. Ernest  Hemingway called the novel an American classic, and  Crane's genius is as much apparent in his sharp,  colorful prose as in his ironic portrayal of an episode  of war so intense, so immediate, so real that the  terror of battle becomes our own ... in a  masterpiece so unique that many believe modern American  fiction began with Stephen Crane.

This is an excellent simple book that helped start a new form of personalized, darker war novels. One of my favorites, great example of loss of innocence with war shown from the simple mind of a teenage boy.

As a mental health professional working with the military, I affirm that Crane did a wonderful job of capturing the thoughts and feelings of warriors. The book is pretty dense, as it condenses what would be years of experience into a period of less than two days.
I would strongly disagree with anyone who categorizes this book as children's literature, as there are some passages that would have given me nightmares as a child.
The book would be valuable reading for people considering enlisting to be a warrior (combat designation), for those who care about or for members of the military, and certainly for mental health providers serving the military.
