The Lebanon war brought to the IDF mental health clinics numerous second-time CSR casualties, the human embodiments of the statistics in the previous chapter. As I was going through their files, I found myself reading more and more about their experiences in the Yom Kippur War, which was fought in October and November of 1973. Most of them had their first diagnosed CSRs in that year; in some cases, the earlier reaction went undiagnosed but became apparent in the psychiatric intake following the breakdown in the Lebanon war.
