PTSD: The American Soldiers Traumatized After WW2 | Battlezone | War Stories

History Documentaries

From the Director of The Maltese Falcon, and Editor of The Godfather, ‘Let There Be Light’ takes an intimate look at the life of American WWII soldiers dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and their road to recovery. Revolutionary for its time, the use of hidden cameras captured intimate moments of these soldiers at their most emotionally vulnerable moments, with the resulting film being intended to educate the public about how difficult this reintroduction to society was for these men. However the footage proved to be so shocking that the US Government banned it being shown until the 1980s. In this film we see one-on-one counselling sessions with veterans and the variety of test that were carried out on soldiers after the war had ended.
