    He had been writing since he was four years old, and was published at sixteen. He exhausted himself and exacerbated his condition. Since the time he joined, however, the army has merely been waiting for engagement. A tall soldier named Jim Conklin spreads a rumor that the army will soon march.

    They had been so proud of their accomplishments, only to learn their commanders had no respect for them. His newfound manhood at the end of the battle is described as a strong, clearheaded confidence, a sense of self-assurance that he had never before felt in his endless internal bickering. He reasons that it was smart for him to run, every soldier should protect himself. After tending to him, the corporal assumes the wound is from a musket ball. When the tattered man asks where Henry is wounded, Henry turns away and slides through the crowd, getting away from the man. He became a journalist in New York, taking short stints for various newspapers and living in near-poverty.

    Henry thinks the only way a man can show his bravery is through battle. After the regiment returns, unsuccessfully, from the offensive, he criticizes the regiment. After a power struggle at the top of MGM management, the film was cut from a two-hour epic to the minute version released to theaters in response to its alleged universally disastrous previews. The tattered soldier continues to ask Henry about his wound, even as his own health visibly worsens. Henry's transformation from a fearful, lost, doubting youth, to a courageous, confident, duty-bound soldier is the essence of the novel.
