The Red Badge Of Courage 1951

Plot centers around how a young recruit (Audie Murphy) faces the horrors of war. Character vacillates between wanting to fight and doubting his own courage. In midst of first bloody encounter, Youth runs away. After seeing dead and wounded, sense of shame leads him back to his unit, where he distinguishes himself in the next battle. Having overcome his fear of "the great Death" he knows e can face whatever comes.
