One of the greatest books about war ever written. Young Henry Fleming had always dreamt of performing heroic deeds in battle. But the reality, as a raw recruit in the American Civil War, is a mental and physical torment. 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.
