Madness and the Military- Australia’s experience of shell shock in the Great War by Michael Tyquin

In this logical sequel to his Gallipoli: The Medical War (1993), Michael Tyquin deals with war neurosis or ‘shell shock’ as it was commonly called for many years after the First World War. In doing so he breaks new ground; the psychological casualties, the mental debris, of that war have been largely forgotten in ways and for reasons he explores and reveals.

This book opened a new field of Australian history and is now presented in this new edition. It describes a neglected generation of war veterans and challenges long-cherished myths surrounding the commemoration of their war, and in examining the treatment of wartime psychological casualties it is an historical work of continuing significance.

Dr Michael Tyquin is a consulting historian and former Army officer.
