"The groundbreaking story of how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has brought the war to our doorstep"--Provided by publisher.
"They were once known by the famous moniker, Band of Brothers." Now, 60 years later, the army unit from Fort Carson, Colorado calls themselves the "Lethal Warriors, " having seen the worst of the violence in Iraq. Many of its members are plagued by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and some, misdiagnosed or untreated since returning from war, embarked on drug-fuelled crime sprees, some of which resulted in murder. Here, David Philipps applies his piercing insight and relentless investigative skills not only to this particular unit, but to the broader issue of PTSD as it rages throughout the country. He highlights the inspiring story of General Mark Graham, a former commander at Fort Carson and one of the few officers who had the vision and guts to recognize this growing problem and to do something about it. Graham has opened his doors to the community for help, speaking candidly about the issue and offering a potential lifeline to the soldiers, and a solution to this deadly problem."--Provided by publisher.
