Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kennedy, a longtime journalist, has assembled and edited 50 chapters' worth of stories from chaplains who serve or served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Their stories have the brevity and terse eloquence of real and lived experience; whether readers will derive hope or a more somber emotion from the hardships described is not easy to answer, but their tales are not distinguished by miracles, angels, or simple resolutions. VERDICT These candid accounts of remarkable luck and bloody catastrophe from dozens of noncombatant military men and women are moving and painful to read. Recommended for militaria collections and regions where many have relatives who serve overseas.
