about this item

Throughout cinema history, filmic depictions of war have been in dialogue with both past genre codes and contemporaneous debates and representational modes. War films remember previous war film cycles and draw on the resources of the present day to say something new about the nature of war. The American Civil War was viscerally documented through large-scale panorama paintings, still photography, and soldier testimonials, leaving behind representational principles that would later inform the development of war film genre codes. This book explores how each of these representational modes cemented different formulas for providing war stories with pathos.
