hi...i recommend the following, i'm not sure the degree to which they
represent attitudes though:

Anderegg, Michael (Ed.). (1991). Inventing Vietnam: The War in Film and
Television. Philadelphia,
PA: Temple University Press.

Dittmar, Linda and Gene Michaud (Eds.). (1991). From Hanoi to Hollywood: The

Subject: Hollywood and the war film


Can anyone give me any information or advice regarding
useful information on war films. I`m particuarly
concentrating on Platoon, Apocalypse Now, Full Metal
Jacket, Saving Private Ryan, The Longest Day. Im
looking to see how these films represent US culture
and attitudes of the times.
Any information or links to decent websites would be
most helpful.
