Synopsis

The Great Battles of the World is historical work concerning the following battles: Vittoria The Siege Of Plevna The Storming Of Burkersdorf Heights A Swede's Campaign In Germany The Storming Of Badajoz The Brief Campaign Against New Orleans The Battle Of Solferino The Battle Of Bunker Hill Stephen Crane (1871 - 1900) was an American author. Prolific throughout his short life, he wrote notable works in the Realist tradition as well as early examples of American Naturalism and Impressionism. He is recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation. Crane's writing is characterized by vivid intensity, distinctive dialects, and irony. Common themes involve fear, spiritual crises and social isolation. Although recognized primarily for The Red Badge of Courage, which has become an American classic, Crane is also known for his poetry, journalism, and short stories such as "The Open Boat", "The Blue Hotel", "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", and The Monster. His writing made a deep impression on 20th-century writers, most prominent among them Ernest Hemingway, and is thought to have inspired the Modernists and the Imagists.
