This collection of essays from ex-soldiers, military historians, chaplains and psychologists examines the unseen wounds sustained by Australians deployed to armed conflict, peacekeeping missions, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

While many psychical injuries heal, there is growing awareness that unseen wounds affecting the mind and the spirit are often the deepest and the most lasting. This book, the first Australian examination of moral injury, shows there are no easy answers and no simple solutions. It suggests where existing approaches are misguided, and how a multi-disciplinary approach is needed to gain a better sense of moral injury.
