really liked it

The book is very well researched and the photos truly add another dimension. The middle chapters for myself dragged down the book a bit. Detailed histories were given for some of the prisoners and after awhile they blurred together as a short summary would be: prisoner as a child grew up in poverty, was one of at least six siblings, and had a parent die at an early age.
