Description

All reporters tell stories. Not many change history. Michael M. Phillips's three-part series “The Lobotomy Files” revealed in depth for the first time this astounding fact: The U.S. Veterans Administration lobotomized more than 2,000 mentally troubled troops after World War II. In an instant, his reporting transformed our understanding of the Greatest Generation, medical practice and the varieties of war trauma, from shell shock to today's PTSD.
