Product description


?In writing an excellent work of history, Montgomery has done a public service by connecting developments over more than a century, from the time of shell shock to that of battle exhaustion and then to post-traumatic stress disorder and its Canadian military variant of operational stress injury. It has been said that in the 1990s the Canadian people were at peace but the Canadian forces were at war.

"This subject matter, combined with Montgomery's clear and compelling writing style, will undoubtedly be of interest to a broad audience including scholars and students in history, soldiers, veterans, their families, and the public." Canadian Journal of H
