    DescriptionIn June 1861, when the Civil War began, Charley Goddard enlisted in the First Minnesota Volunteers. He was 15. He didn't know what a "shooting war" meant or what he was fighting for. But he didn't want to miss out on a great adventure. The "shooting war" turned out to be the horror of combat and the wild luck of survival; how it feels to cross a field toward the enemy, waiting for fire. When he entered the service he was a boy. When he came back he was different; he was only 19, but he was a man with "soldier's heart, " later known as "battle fatigue."

    Review quote
    "A stark, utterly persuasive novel of combat life in the Civil War that may well challenge generations of middle-school readers."--"The New York Times" "Paulsen's storytelling is so psychologically true that readers will feel they have lived through Charley's experience."--"Publishers Weekly", Starred "The nightmare of the Civil War comes to the pages in this novel from Paulsen . . . based on the real-life experiences of a young enlistee."--"Kirkus Reviews", Pointer "The novel's spare, simple language and vivid visual images of brutality and death on the battlefield make it accessible and memorable to young people."--"Booklist", Starred
    Back cover copy
    In June 1861, when the Civil War began, Charley Goddard left his farm and enlisted in the First Minnesota Volunteers. He was fifteen. He didn't rightly know what a "shooting war" meant, or what he was fighting for. All he knew was that he didn't want to miss out on a great adventure.The shooting war meant the horror of combat and the wild luck of survival. It meant knowing how it feels to cross a field toward the enemy, waiting for fire. Waiting for death. And Charley learned: This is how it's done.When he entered the service he was a boy. When he came back he was different. He was only nineteen, but he was a man said to have "soldier's heart".
