Description
 

In this strikingly original and groundbreaking book, Dr. Shay examines the psychological devastation of war by comparing the soldiers of HomersIliadwith Vietnam veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Although theIliadwas written twenty-seven centuries ago it has much to teach about combat trauma, as do the more recent, compelling voices and experiences of Vietnam vets.
