Details

Over the last decade, we have sent thousands of people to fight on our behalf. But what happens when these soldiers come back home, having lost their friends and killed their enemies, having seen and done things that have no place in civilian life?

Aftershock, a hard-hitting account of the hidden cost of conflict, looks beyond the headline-grabbing statistics and the labels of post-traumatic stress disorder to get to the heart of today's post-conflict experience.

Matthew Green uses wide-ranging interviews with former combatants, serving personnel and their families, physicians, therapists, and psychiatrists to tell the story of our veterans' journey from the frontline of combat to the reality of return. Green asks what lessons have been learned from past wars, and explores the range of help currently available, from traditional talking cures to cutting-edge scientific therapies.
