The Royal Army Chaplains' Department, 1796-1953: Clergy under Fire by ProQuest

VIEWS: 4 PAGES: 3

Snape draws on an impressive array of archival and published sources to describe the "broader military, religious, political, and cultural significance" (364) of the RAChD and to argue that in order to properly understand the department one must resist the urge to place it apart from British society. Snape balances this institutional perspective with tales of the chaplains in action, never letting the reader forget that actual people with complex identities and varied experiences took on the often unenviable task of ministering (and preparing to minister) to men at war.
