This is the story of the Civil War through the eyes of Henry Fleming, an ordinary farm boy turned soldier. Marks a departure from the traditional treatment of war in fiction as it captures the sights and sounds of war while creating the intricate inner world of Henry. Probes the personal reactions of unknown foot soldiers fighting unknown enemies. Henry Fleming is motivated not by courage or patriotism but by cowardice, fear, and finally egoism, and events are filtered through his consciousness.

    I had to read this book a long time ago, but I was not mature enough to understand. Definitely a great read as an adult.

    Excellent book, first time I read it I was a teen and didn't truly understand it. Now, 50 plus years later, I understand it very well having had similar experiences myself while serving in the military.
