Description

Casualty Figures is not about the millions who died in the First World War; it is about thecountless thousands of men who lived as long-term casualties—not ofshrapnel and gas, but of the bleak trauma of the slaughter theyescaped. In this powerful new book, Michèle Barrett uncovers the livesof five ordinary soldiers who endured the “war to end all wars,” andhow they dealt with its horrors, both at the front and after the war’send. Through their stories, Barrett sheds new light on the nature ofthe psychological damage of war, which for the first time became bothwidely acknowledged and profoundly controversial through the term "shell shock." Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished material, Casualty Figures is a moving and original account of the psychological havoc caused by war."
