“Ehilà, Dan” … “Ehilà, Billie” …
Fredericksburg, dicembre 1862. Civil War. Dan e Billie sono arruolati nello stesso reggimento unionista. I due fratelli combatteranno insieme ai loro commilitoni e saranno sconfitti dalle truppe confederate. Le perdite saranno così elevate che per i sopravvissuti, da quel momento la loro unità sarà … The Little Regiment.
Relazione fatta di ostilità e indifferenza ostentate, quella dei due fratelli, ma quando Dan non rientra da un’azione …

Read this story for my summer course. While I generally don't read that many war stories, this one was well written and had an unexpected ending.

This is a short collection of stories by Stephen Crane taking place in the Civil War. The focus is on those who usually remain nameless (and too this end, many of the characters in the stories are not named) as well as those that history forgets about. A reoccurring them is the sameness or common humanity despite being on different sides of a conflict. It isn’t just the soldiers that Crane draws attention to but those left at home as well. There are several mediations on the meaning of heroism.

The last book of 2017. A collection of short stories by Stephen Crane. "The Veteran" features Henry Fleming the protagonist of "The Red Badge of Courage."

Good

I'm very impressed that Crane can write this well about the war years later. Easy to picture what you think.

Read in The Stephen Crane Megapack: 94 Classic Works by the Author of The Red Badge of Courage.

Two brothers joined the same regiment in the American Civil War. They seem to not like each other, but really their bickering is a sign of affection.

This story was included in a collection of Crane's Civil War stories titled The Little Regiment and Other Civil War Stories. The other stories in the collection included A Gray Sleeve, A Mystery of Heroism, An Indiana Campaign, Three Miraculous Soldiers,

This is a great book for hiking. Lightweight but big words so you read it slowly. Unfortunately the suspense of the action leads you to rush through it which also means you miss what are, according the back jacket and I believe it, some excellent descriptive sections and impressionistic imagery. Instead what you get caught on is the weird, weird dialogue. Surely the women's manner of speaking especially is pure invention.
Michael Burhans
An interesting collection of little vignettes from the Civil War. Most not related to each other fully, but each adding toigheter to make you understand the feelings of the common soldier in the war.

Still looking for great Civil War literature. Few seem to get this or and 9/11 just right. Don't know why.
