From: Jonathan D. Beard <email@example.com> Subject: War Movies, Saving Private Ryan and World War II Date: March 15, 2010 9:50:12 PM EDT To: H-NET Military History Discussion List <H-WAR@H-NET.MSU.EDU> The Michigan War Studies Review, a website that mostly publishes book reviews (including some I wrote) just published an essay on Saving Private Ryan and why American soldiers fought in World War II. The author is Thomas Bruscino, assistant professor at the School of Advanced Military Studies, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. He seems to write a lot of reviews for various publications. I found his discussion of the interplay between disillusionment during the Vietnam war and the attitudes of World War II veterans--often the fathers of soldiers in Vietnam--to be new and interesting. http://www.miwsr.com/2010/20100302.asp -- Jonathan Beard firstname.lastname@example.org ----- For subscription help, go to: http://www.h-net.org/lists/help/ To change your subscription settings, go to http://h-net.msu.edu/cgi-bin/wa?SUBED1=h-war -----
