Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

In 1864, thirty-three thousand Yankee prisoners of war suffer the horrors of imprisonment at the Confederate prison of Andersonville.


Review:

"Onto the warp of history Mr. Kantor has woven with the stuff of his imagination an immense and terrible pattern, a pattern which finally emerges as a gigantic panorama of the war itself, and of the nation that tore itself to pieces in the war. Out of fragmentary and incoherent records, Mr. Kantor has wrought the greatest of our Civil War novels."

Henry Steele Commager, New York Times Book Review, 10/30/55

Review:

"The novelist employs a thousand different episodes to bring the war within the focus of the prison, and there are times when his power of invention leads him too far afield. In his search for the motivation of the brutal characters such as General Winder, I do not think he is unfailingly successful. But in his pictures of tenacity, endurance, and cleansing mercy he was written with truth and power."

Edward Weeks, Atlantic Monthly, 11/55

Book Description: Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 235 x 159 mm. Brand New Book. Acclaimed as the greatest novel ever written about the War Between the States, this searing Pulitzer Prize-winning book captures all the glory and shame of America s most tragic conflict in the vivid, crowded world of Andersonville, and the people who lived outside its barricades. Based on the author s extensive research and nearly twenty-five years in the making, MacKinlay Kantor s bestselling masterwork tells the heartbreaking story of the notorious Georgia prison where 50,000 Northern soldiers suffered - and 14,000 died - and of the people whose lives were changed by the grim camp where the best and the worst of the Civil War came together. Here is the savagery of the camp commandant, the deep compassion of a nearby planter and his gentle daughter, the merging of valor and viciousness within the stockade itself, and the day-to-day fight for survival among the cowards, cutthroats, innocents, and idealists thrown together by the brutal struggle between North and South. A moving portrait of the bravery of people faced with hopeless tragedy, this is the inspiring American classic of an unforgettable period in American history. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780452269569
