For other books about film and war/military, consider the following.  Also,
these contain good bibliographies. Take a look at the Rollins/Connor book for
most recent listing.

DeBauche, Leslie Midkiff.  Reel Patriotism:  Movies and World War I.
    Wisconsin:  University of Wisconsin Press, 1998.

Dittmar, Linda and Gene Michaud, eds.  From Hanoi to Hollywood:  The Vietnam
War in American Film.   New Brunswick, NJ:  Rutgers UP, 1997.

Doherty, Thomas.  Projections of War:  Hollywood, American Culture, and World
    War II.  New York:  Columbia UP, 1994.

Rollins, Peter C. and John E. Connor, Eds.  Hollywood's World War I Motion
Picture Images.
       Bowling Green, OH: The Popular Press, 2000.

Even such books as the following comment on represenations of the military in

Fraser, George MacDonald.  The Hollywood History of the World:  From One
Million Years, B.C. to Apocalypse Now.  New York, NY:  William Morrow   and
Company, Inc., 1988.

Nadel, Alan.  Flatlining on the Field of Dreams:  Cultural Narratives in the
Films of
    President Reagan's America.  New Brunswick, NJ:  Rutgers UP, 1997.

Toplin, Robert Brent.  History by Hollywood:  The Use and Abuse of the
American    Past.  New York:  University of Illinois Press, 1996.

Toplin uses Mississippi Burning, JFK, Sergeant York, Missing, Bonnie and
Clyde, Patton, Norma Rae, and All the President's Men to measure the
strengths and weaknesses of Hollywood presentations of history.

Good luck with your project!
