Achilles in Vietnam: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character by Shay, Jonathan

$2.99

Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details.

In this strikingly original and groundbreaking book, Dr. Shay examines the psychological devastation of war by comparing the soldiers of Homer's Iliad with Vietnam veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Although the Iliad was written twenty-seven centuries ago it has much to teach about combat trauma, as do the more recent, compelling voices and experiences of Vietnam vets.
