This edition of a work of the first of its kind to be published in Australia in 2006 is an updated analysis of what happened to soldiers who suffered psychologically in the First World War. Madness and the Military compellingly revisits this long-ignored aspect of Australian military history and suggests a link with so-called shell shock and moral injury.


Hailed by experts as both compassionate and instrumental in opening a whole new field of Australian history, it tries to make sense of that forgotten generation of war veterans. It also effectively challenges a number of long-cherished myths surrounding both the commemoration of that war and the treatment of wartime psychological casualties.
