Book News Annotation:

A reprint from 1999, this volume informs service and ex-service authorities, the caring professions, and the general public about combat stress and post-traumatic stress disorder. With a focus on the UK and sharing case histories of his clients throughout, the author describes the early activities of ex-service charitable organizations, the stories of clients who fought in World War II and later conflicts, the types of help available to them, types of treatment and the attitudes of clients toward them, and different mental illnesses they suffer from. The final chapter updates the text by including discussion of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past decade. Brook has been a welfare officer with a service charity, served on a war pensions committee, and is a welfare support visitor with a veterans' agency in the UK. Distributed by ISBS.

Synopsis:

Major (Retd.) Roy Brook was a Welfare Officer in the UK's Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society. His task was to visit and befriend ex-service men and women from all three UK Armed Forces and the Merchant navy. In this book, Brook shares the stories of the horrors and fears that many veterans were unable to leave behind on the battlefield. These wartime experiences continue to haunt them and disrupt their lives, as well as the lives of those close to these veterans. This 2010 revised edition is an essential guide to a wide range of battle stresses, war experiences, and mental conditions. The case histories and the types of patients examined will be of interest to the caring professions, social services, the Armed Forces, and to all families with members currently serving, or who have served, in the Armed Forces. The book includes important patient treatment, assessment, and rehabilitation strategies, as well as discussion of the formal and changing recognition of combat stress.
