From the Publisher
"The stories are all well-written, featuring autobiographical narratives covering childhood, detailed descriptions military traumas and post-war adjustment problems. Schroder and Dawe provide in their final chapter an excellent short history of the record of psychological trauma from ancient warfare to the present. […] All 5 stories in Soldier's Heart give us rich detailed but diverse examples of PTSD symptoms, which make the book valuable to clinicians. Because they also give us a sense of the veterans' pre-service lives, and because they are so culturally different, we get to see the diverse ways that traumas play out. […] Soldier's Heart is both heart-wrenching in its realistic stories of the post war struggles of veterans to adjust to civilian life, and it is also heartening to realize that most of the veteran story-tellers finally found insight and treatment that provided some amelioration of symptoms."

"Mental health professionals will find it important, not for its contribution to the professional literature on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but for the light it sheds on the continuing psychological toll that war takes on the soldiers and on their families."
