Wrong about soldiers suffering (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

torment

Here is my best explanation:

'suffering' is the definition.

(torment is a kind of suffering)

'wrong about soldiers' is the subsidiary indication.

'wrong' becomes 'tort' (I've seen this before).

'about' indicates putting letters inside.

'soldiers' becomes 'men' (I've seen this before).

'tort' placed around 'men' is 'torment'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for torment that I've seen before include "Severe physical or mental suffering", "Pester or tease unmercifully", "Cause great pain to", "More TNT (anag.)", "Distress", "Harry", "Extreme mental or physical distress", "Inflict pain on - pester", "Punish" and "Hound".)
