This small masterpiece set the pattern for the treatment of war in modern fiction. Amid the nightmarish chaos of a Civil War battle, a young soldier discovers courage, humility, and, perhaps, wisdom. It is widely praised for uncanny re-creation of the sights, sounds and sense of actual combat and is considered an enduring landmark of American fiction.
