Join author Meghan Fitzpatrick for a discussion about her extraordinary, and much needed, book, “Invisible Scars: Mental Trauma and the Korean War.”

The Korean War (1950-53) was a ferocious and brutal conflict that produced over four million casualties in the span of three short years. Despite this, it remains relatively absent from most accounts of mental health and war trauma. Fitzpatrick’s book offers an intimate look into the history of psychological trauma and assesses the impact of the Korean War on the development of military psychiatry.
