About this item

American Military History Goes to the Movies examines how Hollywood teaches Americans about the country's military past. Using a unique thematic approach to American military history as reflected in Hollywood films, the book covers leadership, the experience of combat, the image of the American War Hero, race and the experience of war, and more. These concepts are not consistent over time and place, and the book examines the messages conveyed in the films and places these representative movies in context of when they were made. With helpful sidebars that extend the discussion through particular case studies, this book is essential for anyone interested in American military and film history.
