The Chaplain's Assistant: God, Country, and Vietnam

( 5 )

Overview

The Chaplain's Assistant: God, Country, and Vietnam, is "nothing like any Vietnam story you've read before." Caldwell manages to capture the country, the war, and the people caught up in it in a way that is emotional, profane, sexy and heart-breaking. This is JT Caldwell's debut novel and is a next generation war memoir - one without battles, bullets or air strikes, but as grim and realistic as the war it documents.

    Ok

    I was almost finished with this book that I borrowed and had 3 days left to read and when I opened it tonight, it said the lending period expired but still says 2 days left. What I was able to read of it was really intriguing and I enjoyed it. Hope I can finish it sometime. I don't want to pay 7.99$ for a nook book, if it is more than 1.99$ I'd rather buy an actual book.

    Highly recommended

    A compelling story told the way only someone was there could write it. It brought back memories of that period of history. And reminded me again of how brave all those very young men and women were. War tears families apart both physically and emotionally and we should work harder to provide support to all our veterans, past and present.

    For Those Who Served

    J T Caldwell¿s book The Chaplains Assistant is a must read for any one who has served, is serving or knows some one serving in the Armed Services. It depicts the feelings that a solder, Ted Bertson, experiences as he is away serving our country in Vietnam. Being a low-ranking enlisted man in an army that is fighting a controversial war, Ted finds himself fighting with an unexpected enemy, his own fears. Caldwell puts into words feelings that solders often can not describe to those who are close to them. Having suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 'PTSD' himself, Caldwell¿s book is a spokesman for our troops and veterans. Through this book you will find yourself crying, laughing, and clenching the armrest of your chair as you wonder what will happen next. For those who have served, you will find yourself re-experiencing feelings that where once so common as you were away serving. No matter who you are, everyone can relate to the story of Ted Bertson.

    A reviewer

    Caldwell's book should come with a warning that you shouldn't pick it up if you have something else pressing. If you lived through all or part of the Vietnam War era, this book will be hard to put down because it tells another side of this war from a different perspective. It's a compelling story from a fine writer with an eye to ambiance and detail. Caldwell manages to capture the country, the war, and the people caught up in it in a way that is emotional, profane, sexy and heart-breaking. I heard about this fast read from a friend who was also intrigued by it and finished it in 3 hectic days that ended on Memorial Day weekend. It would make a great gift to a Vietnam vet, I think, but better include a box of Kleenex.
