I just finished reading While in the hands of the enemy: Military Prisons of the Civil War by Charles W. Sanders Jr.

I’ve got to say it is a most powerful book that takes aim at some of the most ingrained ideas of what caused the breakdown of the Prisoner of War system in both the North and the South. Those looking for a book that shows how their “side” acted in the right will not be too happy with Mr. Sanders’ conclusions.

I am going to take a few days to digest it and hope to have a review up soon.
