"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, 10/30/55Review:
"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
