From: RollinsPC@aol.com Subject: War on Film, Films about War Date: March 16, 2010 8:55:36 PM EDT To: H-NET Military History Discussion List <H-WAR@H-NET.MSU.EDU> Dear H-WAR scholars, I strongly urge those interested in war films to consult our fairly comprehensive survey of the subject--from the American revolution up to the Iraq war. WHY WE FOUGHT: AMERICA'S WARS AS FILM AND HISTORY. Eds. Peter C. Rollins and John E. O'Connor. UP of Kentucky, 2008. This volume was well-received by CHOICE magazine, which selected it as one of the top fifteen books on film for that year. It received the Ray and Pat Browne Award for a collection of essays from the Popular Culture Association and was picked up as a selection of the History Book Club. Also, the journal FILM & HISTORY carries articles on the historical veracity/lack of veracity and has been doing so for forty years. Universities, via MUSE, have back issues and issues going forward. Google "film and history" and it will be the first item to pop up. There is no party line to the book or to the journal. Studies by historians who believe it is wrong to neglect motion pictures as historical evidence.
