About the book
The horror, heartbreak, and heroism of war has long been a staple of the cinematic artform - the breadth of emotion and the scope of the set allows for breathtaking panoramas, incredible action, and tearjerking intimacy. Whether you set your cap at "Schindler's List" or prefer to aim at "Zulu!", "Welcome to Sarajevo", or "Apocalypse Now", war films portray action and passion, heroism and hope, love, pain, and death in every frame. With insight from critics, film historians, academics, and experts in the field, "101 War Movies You Must See Before You Die" offers a breadth of knowledge, insight, and passion to over a century of POW camps, great escapes, submarine warfare, espionage, personal heroism, 'war is hell' brutalities, aerial dogfights, trench terrors, male-bonding buddy adventures, dirty dozens, panzer divisions, ice stations, desert boots, napalm, strafing runs, and help from the resistance. You'll never need to go over the top again.
