Combat Trauma

“In this incredibly courageous expose,” Vietnam veterans discuss the long-lasting effects of PTSD and their strategies for coping (Publishers Weekly).
Though much has been written about the short-term experience of combat trauma, very few resources discuss how that trauma continues to impact individuals into later life. In this volume, retired Army Chaplain James D. Johnson relates how fifteen Vietnam veterans have been affected by the terror they experienced four decades ago, and how it continues to affect them today.
With candor and vivid detail, they reveal how their combat trauma symptoms still infect their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors on a daily basis. Their stories offer valuable insight for today’s soldiers returning from battle, as well as for their loved ones. The experiences shared here can help them address and cope with the ongoing challenges of PTSD.
Those who still carry these wounds will find that they are not alone, and that there are ways of dealing with the horror, no matter how long ago it took place.
