In sorting out some of my image files, I came across a group of images of shell shock victims from the war, which I have turned into the collage below. I thought the subject was worth a fresh look so I've added links to some of the better articles I've come across on the subject from the Great War and today's wars. Incidentally, I recall that when I was gathering the images for an article published long ago, I had trouble finding photos of such distressed patients. In the middle on the right side is a figure that readers may recognize as Major William Donovan of the 42nd Rainbow Division. To my knowledge he was not diagnosed with shell shock, but in the photo he is clearly showing the strain of the continual battle his unit engaged in. He was wounded sometime after this photo and received the Medal of Honor for his service in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive.
