Published date: 25 May 2016

Millions of soldiers were scarred by their experiences in the First World War trenches, but how new was what we now know as ‘shell shock’? What treatments were on offer? And what happened after the men came home?

Writer and researcher Suzie Grogan reveals the First World War’s legacy for soldiers and looks at the impact of the Spanish influenza outbreak, air raids on the Home Front, the trauma experienced by the survivors, and why the conflict still resonates into the 21st century.
