Few subjects have attracted more attention in medical circles since the beginning of the war than the war neuroses. Each belligerent nation has been confronted with the problem of caring for large numbers of soldiers afflicted with marked nervous manifestations resulting from the strain of war.
The careful consideration of this form of nervous and mental instability was found to be of military as well as of medical importance. The military authorities wished to know how this condition might be prevented, what percentage of men would be cured and how soon, and to what degree an individual was responsible for his actions while he was so afflicted.
