In this paper, some of the results of studies carried out to investigate the impact of war on civilians and on soldiers are presented. Over the past 12 years, the author and colleagues from the Israeli Army Medical Corps and from the University of Tel Aviv have carried out a series of investigations through three wars: the Yom Kippur War of 1973, the Lebanon War of 1982 and the Gulf War of 1991. Men and women, civilians and soldiers, victims of stress reactions in combat, heroes and prisoners of war, children, adolescents, adults and elderly people have been studied. The involvement of a group of psychological, social and cultural factors has been studied in the genesis of and recovery from war-related psychopathology.
