Abstract: OBJECTIVE: This paper outlines the substantial stigmatization of soldiers who suffered psychiatric disorders during World War I, and how there was little acceptance of the enduring impact of prolonged combat exposure once the war ended. CONCLUSION: Recent decades of research highlight the delayed impact of combat exposure and its long-term neurobiological consequences.
