Summary
"Tritle discusses the links between battlefield experiences that affect the participants and victims of war in every age, drawing examples from sources as diverse as the Iliad, Michael Herr's Dispatches, Thucydides' account of the Pelopennesian War, and the Oliver Stone film Platoon. Each instance sheds light on some of the most puzzling phenomena of war and shows how warriors of epic and real-life struggles responded to battle with their won forms of "shell shock," "battle madness," and bonding."--Jacket
