Thanks for this article/post. It's an interesting discussion of the history of how war trauma has been viewed. Are you interested in literary representations of this kind of thing? If you are, Pat Barker's novels (her Regeneration trilogy) about Rivers and WWI soldiers is, I think, a fascinating read on this topic. Anyway, I liked this post (and your blog in general), so thanks.

Thanks for your kind words. There is a tremendous literature on PTSD in wartime dating all the way back to WWI with Erich Maria Remarque and Siegfried Sasson producing powerful writing describing what they went through. I haven't seen Pat Barker's books but I'll take a look.
