Touching, ribald and profoundly moving, this book recounts the histories of the ordinary British servicemen who suffered as psychiatric casualties of World War I. Focusing on their experiences - rather than those of their officers - it provides a new and personal perspective on the impact of the Great War. 'A poignant reminder of the ordinary servicemen who sacrificed their sanity in fighting for their country' Mark Bostridge, 'The Independent on Sunday' 'No historian could have brought to this subject the power and passion which Peter Barham sustains' Ben Shephard, 'Times Literary Supplement' 'Fascinating, eloquent and well-researched ... a book that should be widely read and discussed' Adam Phillips, 'London Review of Books' Peter Barham is a social historian of mental health and a psychologist. Currently a Research Associate at the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, University of Oxford, he is also an established author.
