Psychology Link: Post TraumaticStress Disorder
Summary: In 1986, Afghanistan was torn apart by a war with the Soviet Union. This graphic novel/photo-journal is a record of one reporter’s arduous and dangerous journey through Afghanistan, accompanying the Doctors Without Borders. Didier Lefevre’s photography, paired with the art of Emmanuel Guibert, tells the powerful story of a mission undertaken by men and women dedicated to mending the wounds of war.

The People of Afghanistan's Experiences
Reflection: I enjoyed this book because it allowed me to learn about the history of Afghanistan and the experiences that may cause PTSD. I also enjoyed this book because it mixed the actual images of the French photographer and the illustrations of the co-author.
