From Library Journal
Like the Carroll volume above, this edition of the seasoned veteran provides a new twist. Crane's Badge was originally serialized in the New York Press in 1894, a year before the story was published in novel form. This volume offers both the slightly different serial version and the finished work. Though every library no doubt has numerous copies of Red Badge, academic and public libraries supporting American literature curricula should pop for this one, too, especially at the price.

I asked if he (my husband) had ever read this story and he didn't know what I was talking about.
This book was required reading for me in high school (1994-95) and I LOVED it.
Many people in their reviews talk about the characters, plot, etc so I won't do that.
I will say that when this book arrived it was in great condition, brand new.
HOWEVER!! The print is SO TINY! If you are purchasing this for an older person I would recommend trying to find an edition that has larger font or maybe a Kindle edition so that the reader can enlarge the words.
I liked this book for a few reasons. For one, it's so nice to actually see a character develop and have very human flaws as Henry did and go to possible redemption at the end. In addition, the novel as others have said is a short, but surprisingly accurate depiction of war and not just a rosy outlook in which the main character is flawless from start to finish as well as the war in general for the North. Lastly, the length makes it a very enjoyable novel that you can finish in a day or so.
For having never read the book in school, I definitely would recommend this to anyone who has done the same.
While the psychological struggle of the young soldier experiencing war is interesting and true to real life accounts I've read. What sets this story apart is the author's use of imagery and color. He gives a foreboding personality to the very ground, trees, and hills.
"...and at night, when the stream had become of a sorrowful blackness, one could see across it the red, eyelike gleam of hostile camp fires set in the low brows of distant hills."
The depiction of battle scenes are not gory, but they are vividly realistic and horrible. I think this book is quite a work of art.
