Interactive video lesson plan for: Battle fatigue - did it affect soldiers in the ancient world?

Activity overview:

We know that soldiers today suffer from the mental stresses of combat, but did those of the ancient world do too?

The mental symptoms suffered by soldiers who have been in war include depression, insomnia, nightmares, flashbacks, substance abuse, being constantly hyper-alert, and emotional numbness. Most soldiers do not suffer greatly, and about two thirds of those who do suffer a lot recover after a while. We know that modern warfare has this effect on soldiers, but did the stresses of ancient or medieval warfare cause similar symptoms? Here, I argue that there are significant differences between ancient and modern warfare, and that perhaps the mental effects of combat in the ancient world were lesser than those experienced today.
