Summary This study is the result of cooperative efforts between governmental agencies and also represents a partnership of government and civilian medicine. It would be difficult to overemphasize the pertinency of the subject matter to our national welfare. The experiences of two world wars and their aftermaths demand imaginative and exhaustive investigations of causative, therapeutic and rehabilitative factors in psychiatric illnesses. The pension and compensation functions of the Veterans Administration give factual and startling evidence of these needs. Our defense efforts including the present and future requirements of the armed services, as well as the ever-present spectre of total mobilization in an emergency, all underline the necessity for continued evaluation of the manpower resources of the nation. This includes a study of psychiatric morbidity and how it can be more effectively combated, as well as treated, together with an analysis of the optimum use of the disabled, particularly those with marginal disabilities. This inquiry into the "war neuroses" offers the opportunity for an examination of our present knowledge of the psychoneuroses, particularly as applied to the military setting. It provides a well-documented record of the results of selection, preventive efforts and treatment and rehabilitative procedures. It allows a thoughtful evaluation of screening criteria, assignment methods and treatment programs. It permits conclusions to be drawn with profit to civilian psychiatry, the military and those charged with the after-care of the veteran. That this difficult and laborious research effort could be brought to fruition constitutes a recognition of the dedication and resourcefulness of the authors and those who assisted them.
