Summary

This is the very raw story of a man who served his country, fought in the Falklands, and then, had extreme difficulty adjusting after the war. But it is actually much more than that. Yes, like many veterans of combat he fought - and continues to fight - with post-traumatic stress disorder. However, the factors leading to his PTSD began long before he ever put on his uniform and picked up a gun.

Paul and his siblings suffered for 14 years at the hands of a violently abusive stepfather. This in itself, with no intervention of counselling, set Paul up for a life of explosive bouts of anger and violence. Then, Paul went to war and witnessed horrific sights on the battlefield - sights that the human mind itself recognizes is not “normal”.

Come nighttime, Paul’s sleep was disrupted as his brain tried to make sense of the visions, smells, and sounds. Unable to get the sleep he desperately needed, he was short-tempered and developed a very short fuse.
