    Achilles In Vietnam

    Jonathan Shay, a psychiatrist of Veterans Affairs in Boston has written the most powerful book on post traumatic stress disorder ever. An honest and caring look at what the courageous and brave men faced "over there". An interesting comparison of the Vietnam War and the Iliad, a betrayal of "thetis" defined as what's right. These soldiers were forced to commit barbaric and horrible atrocities to innocents then left to twist in the wind by there army's own command. A command that cared more about the furtherment of their military careers than the safety of their own men. In the end these Veterans were sent home the same way they came to Vietnam, alone. This book is a must read for anyone close to or touched by the story of a Vietnam Veteran.

    Shock to realize the PTSD in all military war vets!
