While the deplorable conditions bear witness to man's inhumanity to man, they also are witness to one man's undaunted spirit to survive to tell the dreadful tale.
The narrative in the diary reflects John Ransom's attitudes, changing from the moody early staccato sentences when he is first captured, to resignation, and eventually to cheerful prose when the war draws to a close.

John Ransom's Diary - A Great Listen
This book was well read and was an easy listen. I had seen the TV Movie "Andersonville" and liked it, so I thought I would try out this book. This book gives far more detail into what life was like at Andersonville and also as a POW in the south during the Civil War.

Worth every penny.
No mumbling, no artificial stuff. No grade B movies heroes waving Yankee flag. Just the real thing. As if I was there myself. Get it.
