Editorial Reviews

Experience the American Journey through our country's visual heritage in this historical recording provided by the National Archives of the United States.

Combat exhaustion cases are brought to an aid station, Army doctors are lectured on combat fatigue, and "hysteria" cases are examined. Describes physical disorders resulting from battle fatigue. A victim of hysterical amnesia is treated with various drugs. A patient relives his combat experiences while under chemical hypnosis. Patients receive personality tests and sleep therapy. Electric shock and insulin is used on "loss of weight" cases. Rehabilitated patients pitch tents and drill. Sodium amytyl is given fatigue cases at the front. Psychiatric officers at the front attempt to detect signs of exhaustion prior to collapse.

From the Office of the Chief Signal Officer.

This is an excellent and informative dvd. It is instruction material for medical officers during WO II. The clarity on what is now called PTSD is moving. No discussion like if and when, but straight forward factual information in an artificial setting of a psychiatric ward.
A straightforward statement that healthy persons are psychologically damaged when they take part in warfare over a prolonged period of time. What was not known at that time, was that greater psychological damage is done by killing than by being shot at in healthy individuals.
When you are interested in the effects of warfare on the individual mind and you have a historical interest in the mental history this is a great dvd.
