A well researched and well written book...Puts many myths to bed regarding this unfortunately scourge in American history (though numerous other Union and Confederate prison canes were not much better). It's not the fiction/partial non-fiction of Kanter's "Andersonville"...though the reality is no less engrossing.
I recommend this to Civil War history buffs...it will not disappoint...
Very well researched about a difficult prison camp in the south, resources were scare and deprivation abounded. The author used a very even hand not to sensationalize any of the events that are depicted in the movie or other books. This is the last place you wanted to end up as a prisoner of war in the south,
