Shook Over Hell: Post-Traumatic Stress,
Vietnam, and the Civil War

Eric T. Dean

Synopsis

Vietnam still haunts the American conscience. Not only did nearly 58,000 Americans die there, but-by some estimates-1.5 million veterans returned with war-induced Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This psychological syndrome of social pathology is now placed in historical context by Eric Dean in this remarkable new book on Civil War veterans. The psychological and readjustment problems experienced by Civil War soldiers echo in later wars as a common medical occurrence.
