“Ben Shephard’s study of how war wounds men’s minds and of medicine’s efforts to heal the damage done, is based on years of dedicated research. It is the best book I have read on the subject and will endure.” – John Keegan

“An utterly absorbing study of the century-long relationship between psychiatry and the military... The richness of his story derives from the sheer variety of experiences and personalities that it incorporates.” – Richard Overy, Literary Review
