Presenting the untold story of thousands of Australian families who welcomed back disabled soldiers after World War I, this poignant account reveals the true impact of physical injury and shell shock on these men and their families well into the 1930s. Drawing the reader into the emotional interior of family life, the discussion brings to light the daily struggles of Australia's 90,000 "changed men" and reveals the significant burdens carried by their family members.
