Based upon your knowledge of World War Two, is this film accurate regarding its portrayal of the conflict?

History is about telling stories. There is arguably no greater medium to tell stories in today’s society and culture than movies. Films have the ability to not only tell us stories about their intended subjects, but provide details about contemporary issues influencing screenwriters and directors. For example, Westerns made during the Cold War have as much to tell us about what Americans were thinking about and debating in the 1950s and 1960s as they do about the actual history of the American West in the 1800s. For this Assignment I would like you to view the films pertaining to World War Two and submit a response that addresses the following: 1) Based upon your knowledge of World War Two, is this film accurate regarding its portrayal of the conflict? Why or why not? 2) Why do you believe we are still so interested in the history and stories of World War Two? How do you believe the time period this film was made influenced changing perceptions of World War Two over time? (For example, what are some of the themes displayed in a 1990s film regarding WWII that perhaps have more to do with what was going on in America in the 1990s than the 1940s?) Possible Movie Choices: The Great Escape (1963) The Dirty Dozen (1967) Patton (1970) Saving Private Ryan (1998) The Thin Red Line (1998) Flags of Our Fathers (2006)
