War Trauma and its Aftermath: An International Perspective on the Balkan and Gulf Wars (Paperback)
War trauma has long been associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a term coined in 1980 to explain the post-war impact of Vietnam veterans. The Gulf and Balkan wars added new dimensions to the traditional PTSD definition, due largely to the changing dynamics of these wars.
