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. The Midwest Review called the book "solid and riveting reading," and it is a humor-laced novel that strikes a balance between the absurd and merciless effects of combat and their long-term impact on the soldiers who fight America's wars.
