Description
War films have existed since the birth of cinema, typically gung-ho tales of macho derring-do. But war films are not always about bravado and bravery, they also detail the horrors of war, the sadness, the brotherhood of soldiers, and the comedy that can be found in the bleakest of situations, as well as the excitement of the battlefield. This book explores defining films of the genre in sections covering different wars, as well as wars with other worlds. It also offers links between the different films, historical and cinematic worth, and profiles of key actors and directors. The films discussed include" Saving Private Ryan," "Dr. Strangelove," "Welcome to Sarajevo," "The Dam Busters," "Gallipoli," " The Deer Hunter," and "Ran."
