Trained to Kill, by the late Theodore Nadelson, MD, provides an excellent examination of the psychological effects of combat on soldiers and the subsequent development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Dr Nadelson was a distinguished psychiatrist and psychoanalyst at Boston University School of Medicine and the Boston Veterans Administration Medical Center and a veteran of the US Army.
