Marks of War: War Neurosis and the Leg/Raftery, John/Paper/0957996020/S003-B
Marks of War challenges the myth that veterans returning from major conflicts re-adapt to their former life without difficulty. At a time when Australian forces are again involved in major international conflicts it explores the long-term outcomes of the Kokoda Trail campaign. The story weaves the rich strands of the personal narratives of veterans into the broader tapestry of the history of war neurosis and war-related stress.
‘. . . an original, reflective and nuanced analysis of the long-term impact of war . . . an exemplary piece of scholarship.’ – Associate Professor Joy Damousi, University of Melbourne.
