Judy Krueger, October 20, 2009 (view all comments by Judy Krueger)
Unbelievably long and incredibly gruesome, this account of a POW camp in the South during the civil war was a bestseller in 1955 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1956. It is a difficult read due to length and subject matter. Perhaps males would like it better than I did. That said, I am glad I read it. I will never disbelieve the horrors I read about modern day prison camps. I don't favor war but prison camps may be worse.
