A War of Nerves : Soldiers and Psychiatrists in the Twentieth Century

By (author) Shephard, Ben

A War of Nerves is a history of military psychiatry in the twentieth century - an authoritative, accessible account drawing on a vast range of diaries, interviews, medical papers, and official records, from doctors as well as from ordinary soldiers. It reaches back to the moment when the technologies of modern warfare and the disciplines of psychological medicine first confronted each other on the Western Front, and traces their uneasy relationship through the eras of shell shock, combat fatigue, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
