Publisher's Summary

July 1864. Union officer Nathan Parker has been imprisoned at the nightmarish Andersonville prison camp in Georgia along with his soldiers. As others die around them, Nathan and his men hatch a daring plan to allow him to escape through a tunnel and make his way to Vicksburg, where he intends to alert his superiors to the imprisonment and push for military action. His efforts are blocked by higher-ups in the military, so Parker takes matters into his own hands.

Together with a shady, dangerous ex-soldier and smuggler named Marcel Lafarge and a fascinating collection of cutthroats, soldiers, and castoffs, a desperate Parker organizes a private rescue mission to free his men before it's too late.

Exciting, thoroughly researched, and dramatic, Escape from Andersonville is a Civil War novel filled with action, memorable characters, and vividly realized descriptions of the war's final year.

wow......just wow

Gene Hackman is a talented writer who also happens to be a talented actor. I picked up his PAYBACK AT MORNING PEAK because Gene Hackman wrote it. Great book, good story, so I was expecting the same here. If anything, this one is better: interesting characters, heroic story set in a very unheroic time, and fascinating insights into the nature of leadership.

As a writer myself, I am always interested in the craft, especially with two authors. I'm always wondering where one ends and the other begins. in this book, it was impossible for me to tell.

Great book, great story, great job.
