Dougie's War

Rodge Glass, D Turbitt

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Dougie’s War is a graphic novel by Rodge Glass and artist Dave Turbitt about the legacy of the war in the Middle East and the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome on returning veterans. A fictional story, but based on meticulously researched real life experiences of Scottish veterans, Dougie’s War shows that the fight doesn’t end when men and women leave military service. Dougie’s War is inspired by the classic and highly influential 80s World War 1 comic strip Charley’s War, the first to explore the reality of war and what was then called shell shock. Key extracts from Charley’s War are included, together with moving interviews with veterans of conflicts in the Falklands, former Yugoslavia, the first Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan.
