The Invisible Scars of War - Stephen Weiss

About the author

Dr Stephen J Weiss is a Fellow at King’s College London with an MA in War studies and subsequent PhD. from the institute. He also has an MA in Clinical Psychology from Goddard College in Vermont.

His adolescent years spent as a first scout in an American infantry rifle squad, shape the rest of Stephen’s life. Suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as it is now recognised, he struggles to integrate back into civilian life. His later training as a clinical psychologist and his War studies and research on assessment of PTSD give him a greater understanding of the psychology of warfare.

Dr. Stephen Weiss states, “My generation is disappearing at an accelerated rate, and I, with all humility, remain almost alone to present and explain the life of the combat soldier. I believe that after a lifetime of researching and writing, a realistic story of the fighting man has emerged”

Stephen is awarded the French Resistance Medal, two Croix de Guerre, and the American Bronze Star, Légion d’ Honneur and Commandeur in the Order de la Légion d’Honneur, which is the highest decoration in France all of which he has accepted in the name of his fellow combats men.
