Shell shock: a century of silence‘, Big Ideas, 25 April 2016

The affects and significance of shell shock have been underplayed for a century, according to Yale emeritus professor, Jay Winter. (Professor Winter is also associated with Monash University.) He looks at the incidence of shell shock during World War I and says it was far more common than has been suggested by medical and other historical records. This material was first broadcast in September 2015. Audio but no transcript.
