Description: -- The first modern account of all Civil War military prisons
-- A full reference listing prisons and their dates of operation

Written in chronological order, "Portals to Hell" gives new insight into the logistical and political problems involved in holding prisoners of war, as humane ideals in the beginning often gave way to ever-burgeoning prison populations, local opinion, and vindictive commanders and guards.

This ultimate work on Civil War prisons and prisoners covers all aspects of prison life for soldiers on both sides: the lack of adequate shelter; the prisoner exchange program; escapes and escape attempts; women and black prisoners; political prisoners; and food, vermin, illness, and death.
