In this book individual soldiers tell their own stories of horrors to which they have been exposed, and of events that pushed them to the brink of human endurance. The terrible physical effects of sending men into battle have always been self-evident, but only in modern times have the psychological effects been examined. Killing, watching friends die, leading soldiers to their deaths - all have a profound effect on those involved in the front line of war. The author also relates the history of military psychiatry and the scientists who have to balance the demands of the army to "cure" soldiers and return them to battle with the demands of the soldiers themselves, struggling to understand their condition. review >>> A fantastic insightful book, packed with facts regarding war & its effects on the human condition and the development of psychology and psychiatry.
