Images from WWI. These disturbing stills shows the effects of shell shock on war soldiers. War neuroses was little understood at the time and victims received little care or understanding. One doctor called Arthur Hurst believed he could cure every shell shock victim. He took them to Seale Hayne which was deep in the Devon countryside and there he used revolutionary treatments such as hypnosis, persuasion, massage and dietary treatments to cure his patients. In fact 90% of Hurst's patients were cured in one session.
