This book gives us a bird eye view what happened during the civil war. I have to pause several times to absorb the knowledge I've gotten from this book

Very well documented thesis addressing the problems of both Union POWs and Confederate management of prisons. Not just by mismanagement or deliberate cruelty were prisoners afflicted, but by unpreparedness for the housing, feeding, sanitation, and medical care. And the costs were totally unplanned. The bureaucratic mess surrounding prisoner exchanges is boggling. More than a history lesson, it becomes a humanity lesson.
Good thing Narrator Jack is on task to keep us from expiring from the tediousness of this excruciatingly precise and dismal recounting.
