Red Badge of Courage A century ago a 22-year-old named Stephen Crane wrote The Red Badge of Courage, one of the greatest books ever about the Civil War. This video examines Crane's mind and analyzes the classic tale of a young man in the midst of a horrifying, bloody conflict. Crane explores the fear every young man faces: Does he have the courage to face the terrors that a man must face, or is he at heart a coward? By bringing to light the fears young people have when moving out into a cold world, Crane's story is able to touch each new generation.
