    This well-researched book describes the notorious Confederate prison camp known as Andersonville, where more than 45,000 Union soldiers lived in deplorable conditions and some 13,000 died, beginning in 1864. After opening with an annotated "Cast of Characters" and a prologue introducing two prisoners who later published accounts of their time at Andersonville, Gourley offers a chronological account of the prison's troubling history, providing details about such matters as the choice of an unsuitable site; the crowded, unsanitary, and inhumane conditions in the camp; and the controversial postwar trial in which the prison's commandant was tried and executed. The book concludes with an epilogue, an extended "Cast of Characters Revisited," source notes, an extensive selected bibliography, and lists of recommended books, films, and Web sites. Illustrated with many captioned photos and prints and enlivened with quotes from firsthand accounts, this book provides a balanced, informative introduction to Andersonville.
