Regarded as the definitive study of the symbiotic relationship between the film industry and the United States armed services, since this book was first published nearly three decades ago, the US nation has experienced several wars, both on the battlefield and in movie theatres and living rooms at home. Lawrence Suid has extensively revised and expanded his classic history of the mutual exploitation of the film industry and the military, exploring how Hollywood has reflected and effected changes in America's image of its armed services. This significantly expanded edition up to date and includes many of the more recent war films, such as Saving Private Ryan, U-571, Pearl Harbor, and Windtalkers.
