Bausch’s newest novel deals with the experience of a few American soldiers sent up the mountain near Cassino on scouting patrols during the Allied drive north through Italy. Short but compelling look at the horrors of war up close. One of the characters concludes that Stephen Crane got it wrong in The Red Badge of Courage.
