Professional reviews

"A Yankee captain escapes from Andersonville, the notorious Civil War prison in Georgia, and returns with a gang of ruffians to rescue his starving men. The novel by the Academy Award-winning Hackman and coauthor Lenihan is a rich, detailed evocation of the final year of that terrible war and is filled with suspense and colorful characters. Narrator Christopher Lane has a gift for portraying the many types of people caught up in the chaos of the times, and he has a good command of Northern and Southern regional speech patterns and accents. The story is well researched, thrilling, and well narrated. A haunting listening experience. D.L.G. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
