A very moving presentation on The treatment of Union POWs during the civil war. I have visited Andersonville but was unaware the nabuse was pervasive throughout the south. A good read.

Very useful description of life as a prisoner during this war. It is also interesting how little we learn from history, since these same behaviors have repeayed themselves in subsequent conflicts. Provides a useful perspective on both the dark side and the resilient sides of human nature.

Amazing first hand account of life as a Civil War POW. After having read memoirs from Vietnam and WWII POW's it was interesting to see much of the same emotions and interactions no matter what the era. One can only hope that mankind can learn from their past horrors.

Drags on a bit - but overall very good reading as it lends insight to the poorest of conditions encountered at Andersonville .... One American upon another - hmmmm - it would not take much to replicate the barbarism once food supplies dwindle in our current state - it seems to me the union boys are more educated than the avg american is today.

Gripping realism. An important memoir of the little-known history of union POWs in the South. Couldn't put it down.

This is a classic Civil War book that readers will find compelling in the extreme. I've visited Andersonville twice in my life, and nothing brings the horrors of the place closer to home than this book. It deserves the close attention of all who are interested in this period of our American history.
