Shell Shock: The Minds the Dead Have Ravished -- Shellshock was one of the most traumatic illnesses to come out of the Great War. It was a direct result of the great changes that were sweeping warfare. Technical advances in weaponry were marching far ahead of tactical knowhow and as a result the soldiers in the trenches were forced to face weapons of unparalled power. The cannons and field guns were raining down shells of enormous explosive power, the machine gun sprayed whole companies with death in seconds and the unseen horrors of gas flooded into unsuspecting trenches.
This documentary charts the recognition and primitive treatments used to try and drive the horrific effect of war from the human mind. Those who were treated were the lucky ones, many were executed for their illness in the belief that they were cowards. Nothing could have been further from the truth.
