Description:

The paper looks at how Dave Grossman uses his expertise from his military service to describe and characterize the psychological and the physiological factors involved in combat in his work "On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace". The paper attempts to describe how Grossman conveys the reality of combat to the reader. The paper also looks at his treatment of the act of killing and the fact that this is not something that comes naturally to most people. The paper shows how Grossman's book is directed both at those who train soldiers and at the young soldiers themselves, from the neophyte to the veteran.
