It’s with mixed emotion that I watch the “war movies” that inhabit the old TV movie channels on “patriotic” holidays. Now, I have no illusions why they are showing the genre. Not that they are “patriots”. But, it does get an audience of those wistful for the simpler times, those seeking “action”, and those who have illusions of what war is.
People, mostly men, die!
You can lose sight of that fact in their silver screen propaganda.
