On March 1, 2019, at 6:00PM, New York Times best-selling author and military historian John Wukovits (ND '67) will give a book talk on his newly published Soldiers of a Different Cloth: Notre Dame Chaplains in World War II at Barnes & Noble (Mishawaka, IN)Fans of WWII era books and Notre Dame history will enjoy his presentation and a chance for a meet & greet afterwards.


Soldiers of a Different Cloth is generating strong reviews, including these recent pieces in The Boston Pilot and The Arlington Catholic Herald.


Flint Whitlock, author and editor of WWII Quarterly magazine, says, "John Wukovits shines light on a previously little-known aspect of World War II: the vital role that chaplains—especially those from Notre Dame—played in providing spiritual comfort during times of great stress, and in aiding the sick, wounded, and others 'at the hour of their deaths.' For a long time medics have been regarded as 'unsung heroes' on the battlefield; to that short list can now be added chaplains. This superbly written work will do much to open peoples' eyes to these often-overlooked brave and selfless men."
