I won this book through Goodreads, Thank you John Whelan. I confronted my husband on this book , He read it also then told me about his own PTSD and what it has done to him. Yes I already knew of his troubles, he then pointed out the number of military personnel , most have different stories , different problems . GOD bless these men and women. This book really explains what happens and it doesn't matter if in Canada or United States.
An interesting read about members of the Canadian Military who suffered from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). The book retells true stories from soldiers and the mental issues they suffered. The pain and abandonment they experienced is depicted in this book. Dr Whelan does not give answers or solutions but tries to give an understanding of the psychological issues the soldiers went through as a result of PTSD.
