Anne Shmelzer displays an acute understanding of the warfare experience.  She shines a light on the early emergence of PTSD and creates a vivid image of Will Nicol’s internal struggle to regain his mental health. From the battlefields of the Western Front to his reintegration into society, A Marginally Noted Man takes us on an emotional journey that is difficult to put down. This is a great read!
