Much has been written about Blair Mayne since his death 57 years ago; and there has been much speculation about his complex character, his amazingly courageous exploits, and his untimely and unglamorous death. This book provides some further insight into the nature of the man, by revealing for the first time some more private papers and photographs that have come to light.

One aspect of his life and death is the way he dealt with the transition from operational to civilian life after the war. Posthumous psychological assessment is not possible with any certainty, but what we now know about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may well have affected his behaviour, and indeed his decline and death. This book is one more contribution to knowledge that can inform those of us who work in this field and are concerned with the effective treatment of this distressing condition.

Colonel A de P Gauvain (Retired)
Chairman, PTSD Resolution
