One of the greatest books about war ever written. Young Henry Fleming had always dreamt of performing heroic deeds in battle.

And as Henry fights his inner battles with fear, self-doubt, trauma and vainglory throughout his first harrowing action, he has no idea whether war will make him a coward, a hero - or a man.
