Where Grossman's previous book On Killing looked into what happened to the mind before taking a life, On Combat studies the mind during and after. Relief, anger, sadness and aggression are all pulled from tales of those who have actually seen combat and carefully relayed so that a person can know what to expect during and following enduring any psychologically disturbing event whether from human or natural causes.

I picked up this book to make me a better writer, as I pray I will never face combat personally, but anyone who is dealing with the stresses of such events will certainly find a good resource on hand. Grossman is a leading voice in the world of PTSD and combat psychology but he writes with the understanding that his audience may not have such a background, pulling from real life cases and down to earth scenarios to create a book a lay man can understand and appreciate.
