'This book is a comprehensive analysis of the history and development of military psychiatry... it provides a fascinating insight to the attempts made to manage and treat war personnel and veterans. It will be of interest to those interested in the classification and development of psychological disorders. The book would be a useful addition to any psychiatric library.'- Joseph Curran, Mental Health Practice, July 2005

'The topic is of course a specialist one, but, as in everything Simon Wessely writes, the larger role of social factors, views and opinions plays an important role[sic]. ... It is this wider view that could make this book interesting to professionals in general, not just to specialists in military medicine' - Peter Hayward, Institute of Psychiatry, London, in Journal of Mental Health V. 14 No. 5 October 2005

'The thematic chapters ... are presented with Wessely's usual intellectual energy and command of the literature. ... These chapters offer efficient surveys of the literature by a master epidemiologist, and clinicians will find them enormously useful. Wessely and Jones' work has done much to bring order and rigour to a field which a decade a go was awash with romantic mythology, conspiracy theories and (in the military) blinkered suspicion. Some of their articles are classics;' - Ben Shephard, in Medical History, July 2006
