A shocking introduction to trauma -- Battle exhaustion and medical movements -- Vietnam, trauma, and recognition -- Peacekeeping, politics, and perceptions -- Breaking down the wall -- Millennium approaches : new reforms and old challenges.
Canadian soldiers returning home have always been changed by war and peacekeeping, frequently in harmful but unseen ways. The Invisible Injured explores the Canadian military's continuous battle with psychological trauma from 1914 to 2014 to show that while public understanding and sympathy toward affected soldiers has increased, myths and stigmas have remained constant.
