Unlike the majority of popular and academic books on war movies, this unique volume will cover all aspects of the war cinema genre. As well as examining movies focussing upon specific conflicts, it also places each work within a wider social context, exploring related themes and issues of the time. Written by a number of informed and well-respected journalists (James Mottram is The Guardian film critic, for example) and academics dealing with their own specific subject areas, viewpoints and interests, this detailed work will be essential reading for all movie fans, as well as social historians. A number of the contributing writers are also authors of their own war books.
