From Healing Combat Trauma (a blog with some great reading resources I'd recommend anyone check out):

It's heartening to see a few more books published on a topic near and dear to our heart: healing combat trauma and/or PTSD (see sidebar for titles; scroll all the way down). War and the Soul: Healing Our Nation's Veterans from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, by Edward Tick. And (great title!) Moving a Nation to Care: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and America's Returning Troops, by fellow journalist/blogger, Ilona Meagher. The first book looks like it was published several years ago, so isn't new, but the second book is new. Let's hope this heralds a (re)surgence of interest in this vital topic!

I'm partial to the title myself, too. [wink]
