Fifty years after the end of World War II, veterans' symptoms can still include nightmares, uncontrollable outbursts of anger, emotional withdrawal, intrusive war-time thoughts, sleep disturbance and depression. Silent Casualties is based on frank and often painful interviews with eight of these Second World War combat survivors, their wives and families.
