Publication | Library Call Number: D810.C36 U66 2012
Book cover

"As a chaplain for the US Army's 102nd Evacuation Hospital in the European Theater, Renwick C. Kennedy ... witnessed great courage, extreme talent, and many lives snatched from the precipice of death ... and he also observed drug and alcohol abuse, prejudice, narrow-mindedness, and chronic depression. What he saw, he chronicled in his journal ... With Kennedy's war diaries and postwar articles ... in front of him, historian Tennant McWilliams spent a year retracing every step, every turn, every location of the 102nd in wartime France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany ... [His] interviews with citizens ... who recall the 102nd, further revealed local people's reactions to the army hospital that illuminated both Kennedy's severe criticism and his enduring praise for evac life"--Dust jacket.
