Abstract

As all-encompassing and disruptive as a combat stress reaction is, we know remarkably little about its aftereffects. Combat stress reactions have been known since biblical times and have been noted in professional literature since the American Civil War. Since the middle of the last century, quite a number of wars have been accompanied by an outpouring of studies, conducted during and immediately after the hostilities, on soldiers’ reactions to the stress of battle. But there has been almost no systematic study of the long-term psychological sequelae of combat stress reactions.
