Summary
"This book is an international comparative study of the British, German and French military chaplains during the First World War. The role and position of the chaplaincies in the armies, as well as the problems they encountered and the solutions they sought in their daily work in and behind the lines are analysed, while the book tries to find explanations for differences and similarities between the chaplaincies by looking at the relations between church, state and society."--Provided by publisher
