Chapter 3 of Red Badge of Courage

The youth, forgetting his neat plan of getting killed, gazed spell bound. His eyes grew wide and busy with the action of the scene. His mouth was a little ways open.

Am I the only one who had trouble with this chapter?  The youth was marching, and came to a battlefield and BANG! NOTHING MAKES SENSE!!!!  I wonder is the author spoke English, or do 8th graders only speak it?  The youth did say something about not wanting to go to war, but wasn’t he begging his mom to let him go like 20 sec. earlier???   Lastly, why do I no Understando!!!   To she who must know; EXPLAIN PLEASE!
