A Mystery of Heroism Irony?

Answer

A Mystery of Heroism is a short story about war and was written by Stephen Crane. The story focuses on one soldier who is conflicted internally on whether or not he is a true hero. In the book, he crosses the battlefield to get a glass of water and he thinks that he is a hero because he does not feel afraid. The irony in the story is that despite the fact that he showed heroism by aiding a wounded soldier, his efforts go completely unrecognized and to waste upon his return to the other soldiers.
