I first found the LC authority, which gives "war neuroses" as a refer from
to "shell shock." WorldCat has nearly 450 records when I limited the search
to "English language." LC has 25 entries under "war neuroses" limited to
items in English; there are 25 entries under that heading and language.
You might want to check with the service academy libraries to see if they
have any archival materials.

Subject: [PW] accounts of PTSD/other disorders in *American* World War
I am doing research on behalf of a friend who's writing a novel partly set
in the US in the years immediately after WWI.
She wants some accounts of the psychological experiences of American
veterans in the postwar years
I told her to read Hemingway's "Soldier's Home" for a portrayal of the
alienation experienced by many former doughboys.
I've also been looking online and searching catalogs for any letters,
diaries or memoirs of members of the AEF. I have also been looking through
histories of the 1920s. No luck.
I realize given the time period many men would be reticent about any kind
of trauma they were experiencing, so this could well be something difficult
I would appreciate any help any of you can provide.
Thanks in advance,
