War films

Definition

Used for fictional works portraying military conflicts in the twentieth century, primarily the first and second world wars, but also other subsequent wars, such as Vietnam, as well as smaller conflicts. Includes not only portrayals of combat, but stories set in POW camps, accounts of the homefront, and depictions of the difficulties of demobilization and the veteran returning to civilian life. The genre includes depictions of the primary fronts during the war, as well as the battles on the geographical margins of the conflict. The genre ranges from work enthusiastically dramatizing the war effort, with harsh portrayals of the enemy, to denunciations of war.
