HE pages of this volume tell little of war's pomp and pageantry. Their subject is, and must be, grim and terrible. Though prisoners of war were not criminals, but often men whose courage was their only fault, and though their detention must not be considered as deserved punishment, but as a military necessity, nevertheless all prisons are unlovely. The groans of men, one moment Vigorous, the next shattered and broken, or the Sight of strength visibly ebbing away from disease, are awful. It is the dark and cruel side of war that must here be told.
