Shell Shock and Wonder Woman

As we’ve been learning about WWI I was reminded of the movie Wonder Woman and while it has some things wrong and obviously superheroy about WWI, I like how it shows Charlies PTSD as shown in this scene below.

There was another scene I liked that had Charlie basically trying to leave and saying that he was no use anymore because he can’t shoot a gun because of his Shell Shock.  But they get him to stay by asking “Who will sing for us?” showing a deep camaraderie between everyone and how he does help by keeping their spirits high.

 

If anyone else noticed anything in the movie about this I’d love to know!
