Yes, the grim untold reality of the war is a truthful one.
Often after a war, the country and it’s media glorifies the war and the soldiers of the war; they boast about the bravery of their soldiers and show how proud they are of their soldiers. What remains hidden is the suffering and pain of the families who have lost their sons during the war; the agony of the soldiers when they have to carry the dead bodies of their friends; the dejection of the wounded soldiers who lose an arm, an eye or their feet due to war. When hearing the tales of war, seeing the images of the dead of the war makes one shudder under its influence, it can just be imagined what emotions the soldiers who fight the war must be harboring in their hearts.
At times, it has become evident that a soldier is under deep stress after experiencing war. They refuse to share war stories or are hesitant to do so; they seem to be emotionally disconnected from others; a little disturbance around them may cause extreme alertness or panic in them. There have been cases where a post war surviving soldier suffers from post-traumatic stress. While the soldiers do take pride in protecting their country, they are human too and slaughter of their kind at their own hands does inflict scars that are difficult to fade away.
