ACHILLES IN VIETNAM: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character

ACHILLES IN VIETNAM: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character
$17.00
In this strikingly original and groundbreaking book, Dr. Shay examines the psychological devastation of war by comparing the soldiers of Homer's "Iliad" with Vietnam veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Although the "Iliad" was 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.
