Why didn't we hear about post traumatic stress from WW2 & Korean war soldiers?


The casualty rate amount WW2 and Korean war soldiers was extremely high, around 50%, in addition soldiers those days, have no armour making them more vulnerable, considering it was total war, an entire generation of people fought in those wars, yet, there seem to be fewer reported case of post traumatic stress disorder from those soldiers, in term of ratio. Were men back in those day, just more hard core, use to that sort of thing or they just kept it bottle up?

    exactly this. It was sugar coated and glossed over much more easily back then.
