Engaging in fierce battle in a full-blown war can certainly produce some very serious aspects of psychological damage to the men who had fought, and killed, and clearly resented what they were being forced to do in the name of bringing about peace.

"Of Men and War" is a 2-hour-47-minute documentary that focuses in on 13 American "Iraq War" vets who are all suffering from PTSD (aka. post-traumatic stress disorder) and who have sought therapy in order to help them get on with their everyday lives and not continue to carry the psychological burden of guilt for their actions in war.

I think that this presentation (though long) is certainly worth a view.

Featuring 13 Iraq War vets (of American citizenship) who are clearly seething with anger, hatred, resentment, and disillusionment (along with a strong dose of PTSD thrown into the mix for good measure) - "Of Men and War" closely follows these tormented men as they struggle with recovery over a 5-year period of time at Pathway Home in Yountville, California.

If you are keen on watching a serious documentary about war-related mental health issues (that's close to being 2.5 hours of straight therapy) - Then - "Of Men and War" should prove to be of some interest to you as a spectator.
