... soldiers broken by battle
About this talk: 'Shell Shocked Britain' This talk examines the impact of the Great War on the mental health of the nation. It looks not only at the shell-shocked themselves but also at their families as well as the men, women and children traumatised by devastating air raids on the Home Front. The talk also discusses the different medical approaches to finding 'cures' and re-evaluates the Armistice – it was not all 'wild laughter on Mafeking Street'.
