More than anything, Civil War soldiers feared becoming a prisoner of war. Dysentery, starvation, harsh weather, and brutal mistreatment killed more men in prisons than were killed at Gettysburg. This book strips the war of its romance and pageantry. What is left is the horror of the war and the extraordinary courage of American soldiers from both North and South.
