I felt your experiences as if my own, as I had a career as an Infantry Officer in the Punjab Regiment and fought a messy war in 1971 with India. I spent two years in captivity as a POW and your Guide has enormously helped me.

- Veteran captain, Pakistan Army

The Guide made me cry and I do have a lot of the problems that are in it. I was amazed at how the Guide is me and my ex-wife said the same. It is appreciated, thank you.

- Northern Ireland and Gulf War veteran

Thanks so much for the Guide. The Police, Psychiatric and Probation Services took no notice of my twenty-year service

- Special Forces highly decorated veteran

Watching one’s child suffering PTSD is a heartbreaking experience. It made me feel totally inadequate as a mother, as I could not take away the pain, fear, hurt, anger etc. of my child. I also believed this anger was directed at me personally and found it difficult to understand. The Survival Guide gave me, in words that I can understand, a greater knowledge of PTSD, showing me how to help myself deal with PTSD and therefore help and support my child.

- Mother of a sufferer of PTSD

Thanks for the Guide. I needed this information

- Vietnam veteran

I have read the Guide from cover to cover, it’s so accurate and has had a profound effect, and it’s somewhat comforting.

- Gulf War veteran

Only soldiers can talk to soldiers and understand. Thanks, there are a lot of hurt men out there who need help.

- Veteran soldier

The Survival Guide blew me out of the water.

- Brigadier (retired), Special Air Service (SAS)
