The Invisible Injured explores the Canadian military’s continuous battle with psychological trauma from 1914 to 2014 to show that while public understanding and sympathy toward affected soldiers has increased, myths and stigmas have remained constant. Whether afflicted with shell shock, battle exhaustion, or post-traumatic stress disorder, Canadian troops were at the mercy of a military culture that promoted stoic and manly behaviour while shunning weakness and vulnera- bility. Those who admitted to mental difficulties were often ostracized, re- leased from the military, and denied a pension. Through interviews with veterans and close examination of accounts and records on the First World War, the Second World War, and post–Cold War peacekeeping missions, Adam Montgomery outlines the intimate links between the military, psychia- trists, politicians, and the Canadian public. He demonstrates that Canadians’ views of trauma developed alongside the nation’s changing role on the interna- tional stage – from warrior nation to peacekeeper. While Canadians took pride in their military’s accomplishments around the globe, soldiers who came back haunted by their experiences were often ignored. Utilizing a wide range of historical sources and a frank approach, The Invisible Injured is the first book-length history of trauma in the Canadian military over the past century. It is a timely and provocative study that points to past mistakes and outlines new ideas of courage and determination. Adam Montgomery is an independent scholar and freelance writer specializing in military and medical history. Colonel G.W.L. Nicholson’s Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914–1919 was first published by the Department of National Defence in 1962 as the official history of the Canadian Army’s involvement in the First World War. Immediately after the war ended Colonel A. Fortescue Duguid made a first attempt to write an official history of the war, but the ill-fated project pro- duced only the first of an anticipated eight volumes. Decades later, G.W.L. Nicholson – already the author of an official history of the Second World War – was commissioned to write a new official history of the First. Illustrated with numerous photographs and full-colour maps, Nicholson’s text offers an au- thoritative account of the war effort, while also discussing politics on the home front, including debates around conscription in 1917. With a new critical introduction by Mark Humphries that traces the devel- opment of Nicholson’s text and analyzes its legacy, Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914–1919 is an essential resource for both professional historians and military history enthusiasts. Colonel G.W.L. Nicholson (1920–1980) served with the Prince Albert Volun- teers and worked for the Historical Section of the Canadian military, with appointments in London and Ottawa, from 1943 until his retirement in 1961. He is the author of Marlborough and the War of the Spanish Succession, The Canadians in Italy, 1943–1945, and The Fighting Newfoundlander. Mark Humphries is associate professor of history and Dunkley Chair in War and the Canadian Experience at Wilfrid Laurier University. 1 1 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 7 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S McGill-Queen’s/Associated Medical Services Studies in the History of Medicine, Health, and Society May 2017 978-0-7735-4995-1 $34.95T CDN, $34.95A US, £29.99 cloth 6 x 9 376pp eBook available S P E C I F I C AT I O N S Carleton Library Series May 2017 978-0-7735-4618-9 $44.95A CDN, $44.95A US, £39.00 paper 6 x 9 672pp 12 colour and 60 b&w maps, 56 b&w photos, 2 colour illustrations eBook available n e w i n p a p e r Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914–1919 Official History of the Canadian Army in the First World War New Edition g.w.l. nicholson With a new introduction by Mark Humphries An authoritative and extensively illustrated account of how the Canadian Army experienced the Great War.
