This novel might be considered as one of the best novel of the dawning twenty first century. Crane, though had never smelled the civil war, was able to account in full details the feeling of a recruit excited to fight in the war.

as novel progressed, the protagonist, Fleming, who was a newbie experienced a lot of mix feelings. he had felt fear when he saw a dead man leaning against a tree. he saw his comrades falling as the shots of guns progressed, and he once retreated and ran away from the battle. yet, his heart was on proving his valor and courage that he once found himself again on the battleground - advancing, moving and fighting courageously the enemies.

likewise with his superb story telling ability, for me, Crane was not the new Tolstoy. in fact, he is even greater than him.
