Lt. Col.

He combined his experiences to become the founder of a new field of scientific endeavor that has been termed “killology.” In this new field, Col. Grossman has made revolutionary contributions to our understanding of killing in war, the psychological costs of war, the root causes of the current “virus” of violent crime that is raging around the world, and the process of healing the victims of violence in war and peace. Col. Grossman has been called upon to write the entry on “Aggression and Violence” in the Oxford Companion to American Military History, three entries in the Academic Press Encyclopedia of Violence, and numerous entries in scholarly journals, including the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy.
