This volume is a collection of papers published by the physicians who are particularly interested in psychologic problems in the Royal Air Force. Some of the papers are therefore dated as early as January 1942 and a few of them extend to 1944 and 1945. Practically every aspect of psychiatric work among air forces personnel is discussed, and the whole problem of neuroses in that service can be surveyed by reading this book. There may be minor points of disagreement, but the descriptions and conclusions are basically sound and may prove valuable to know for future wars.
