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.

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.

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.
