The Red Badge of Courage; An Episode of the American Civil War

Stephen CRANE (1871 - 1900)

There comes a time in the course of battle when a participant casts his fate to the gods of war, and carries on without question, the task at hand. Living, dying, right or wrong, can be contemplated later. The spirit of the bayonet takes over and carries the youth through the crucible of battle to emerge a short time later several ages older.

Stephen Cranes classic novel gives us a glimpse into the mind of a young soldier as he passes through the experience he will never be able to forget, and possibly awaken him from his slumber in a sweat and panic for years to come.

Narrated by Mike Vendetti, Purple Heart, November 1965 (Summary by Mike Vendetti).
