Show of the week: Wartorn 1861–2010

James Gandolfini's documentary explores the toll of post-traumatic stress disorder—once known as shell shock or battle fatigue—by telling stories of mentally scarred combat veterans from the Civil War to the present.

The psychological wounds of war have been around far longer than the diagnostic term “post-traumatic stress disorder.” This powerful documentary explores the toll of PTSD by telling stories of mentally scarred combat veterans from the Civil War to the present. Interviews with ex-soldiers and their loved ones detail how families have been shattered by the disorder once known as shell shock or battle fatigue. Executive producer James Gandolfini also talks to contemporary military leaders and experts about the rising rate of suicide among soldiers and veterans. Thursday, Nov. 11, at 9 p.m., HBO
