The Red Badge of Courage

how do you think the author might define courage?

Crane repeatedly used animal images to describe the regiments fighting.

I think the true courage came at the end of the book when Henry is more self reflective and mature. Henry sees himself, his fellow troops, and the enemy as men and not mythical or hidden creatures.HE understands that war and courage are both a maddening test of young men to confront what they cannot control.
