[via Small Wars Journal] Combat trauma, in the abstract, is something about which Bob Bateman knows a lot. (LTC Bateman is a combat veteran himself, but his interest in combat trauma is academic, we hope.) Abu Muqawama had previously been treated to an earlier version of this excellent bibliography. If anyone has interest in PTSD or combat trauma, check it out. Some of you might have read Achilles in Vietnam, but as The Bateman points out, the full corpus of literature goes far beyond -- and improves upon -- that book.
Abu Muqawama has never really been adversely affected by his combat experiences in Iraq or Afghanistan. Abu Muqawama knocks on wood a lot.
