Celluloid Wars: A Guide to Film and the American Experience of War

                                           Frank J. Wetta and Stephen J. Curley




   “This easy-to-use guide explores the relationships between film images and the experience of war, showing how films influence war-time behavior and how wars influence films. This unique reference combines essays on the aesthetic and historical aspects of war films with classifications and discussions of films about different wars, a filmography arranged alphabetically with annotations, a bibliography of books and articles dealing with war films, a general guide for film study, along with separate indices to film titles, filmmakers, and subjects.

   This is both a research guide and text for serious scholars of military history and American popular culture, and an attractive reader for history buffs and for a general audience.”
