Interesting take on the Civil War

Every so often a book is published that covers an aspect of the Civil War that is not usually discussed in other works. Such a book is this one, by a well-respected Civil War writer. I must confess that I knew absolutely nothing about hostage-taking during that war, and this work was quite welcome to me, because it informed me in great detail about that situation. A fratricidal war was horrible enough, but when both fighting men, and civilians, were used by the opposing forces as pawns, this war was reduced to one level above barbarism. Thankfully, the good senses of those in charge took control, and there were not tragic consequences of this practice. The writing is clear and concise, and although some of the situations were glossed over when I would have wished for more detail, I found this work as a whole interesting and, definitely, quite informative.
