Summary
A documentary filmed at an Army hospital which records actual treatment of World War II veterans suffering from neuropsychiatric conditions, commonly referred to as "shell shock" and "battle fatigue," as a result of their battle experiences. Treatment methods include hypnosis, narcotherapy and psychiatric therapy. In 1946, just before its first public showing, the film was confiscated by the policy group of Army Public Relations. It wasn't made available for general viewing until 1981 when distributed by National Audiovisual Center
