I had no idea how big a role that Chaplains played in the armed forces. The author is also a class act who signed my library's copy!

I found this to be a pretty interesting read. It details the role of the Clergy from Militia time to the aftermath of the war. I contains a pretty basic list of those that served, limited to the Canadian Expeditionary Force, but has extensive end-notes. I picked this up to look for reference to a specific man, but quickly found myself absorbed in the growing influence the Clergy played. It's the only book on the subject that I'm aware of, and I would recommend it.
A good overview of the role Christian clergy (from various denominations) played from the beginning to the aftermath of the Great War. Includes extensive notes, a good bibliography as well as a comprehensive list of the clergy (names, denomination and location(s) of service) who served with the CEF.
