About this title:

Synopsis: The greatest mistreatment of POWs in American history took place in the Civil War, when nearly 50,000 soldiers starved or froze to death, died of torture and forced labour, succumbed to untreated wounds and diseases, or were hanged for escape attempts - all while captives of their fellow countrymen. The author of the "Civil War Years" weaves a tale arranged as a day-by-day, year-by-year account of the prisoner problem, the development of the exchange cartel, the political games played with the lives of the prisoners, and life in the prison camps.

From School Library Journal: YA-Combining thousands of excerpts from diaries, letters, newspaper articles, and government records in chronological order, Denney provides easy access to the details of the lives of prisoners-of-war in the Civil War. Other entries discuss the political problems relating to exchanges, conditions, and governmental red tape. Quotations from men of both the North and the South are included. Denney's introduction and narration provide needed background information for the primary sources and meaningfully tie the entries together. The excerpts seem to be chosen for their attention to detail, bringing to life the difficult existence the prisoners faced; they are also interesting and readable. Although the index is detailed, there are no cross references. Photographs are included in a six-page insert. A unique, useful resource.
