Americans have always held ambiguous views toward war -- deploring bloodshed and destruction on the one hand, while glorifying military heroism on the other. Essays in this book examine how this ambivalence has been reflected in the popular culture of the twentieth century, from the end of World War I through to the aftermath of Vietnam.
"Fascinating, informative reading as well as a solid research support; a generous, annotated selection of additional resources is appended."
