War Wounded: Combat Stress Sequelae of 10ID Soldiers by Gail Tan Ilagan

Title: War Wounded: Combat Stress Sequelae of 10ID Soldiers
Author: Gail Tan Ilagan
Synopsis: War shock has been the convenient term to describe unusual behavior of soldiers who are fresh from battle or have deeply registered and prolonged trauma from past life-threatening combat encounters. Beyond such circumstances, however, there are complex psychological, social, and emotional processes involved, precipitating factors, and deeper indicators in the onset of combat-related trauma or what we commonly refer to as war shock. The following pages and chapters of this work give the reader an in-depth – almost introspective – look at the processes that give rise to trauma or combat stress. We are drawn to visualize the narrative of the respondent’s to the study of the author. Even a non-specialist or lay reader will find the narratives engaging with the non-clinical approach to the text, which looks at the stream of the consciousness of the respondents.
