Whether you know every line from THE GREAT ESCAPE or could watch THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI again and again, 101 WAR MOVIES YOU MUST SEE BEFORE YOU DIE is the book for you. Take a war, any war, from the beginning of time to the present day, throw in some amazing heroes, antiheroes and a whole lot of action and you have a classic war film. From Billy Wilder's STALAG 17 to THE DEER HUNTER this is the perfect guide.

War films transcend more than one genre. From the first "antiwar" film, ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, through Bogart and Hepburn in THE AFRICAN QUEEN to Clint Eastwood's powerful LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, war films have spanned several worlds of film-making. Discover movies filled with jingoistic propaganda made during wartime, as well as those that look back and ask the huge, burning questions that governments still refuse to answer.

With insight from critics, film historians and academics, 101 WAR MOVIES YOU MUST SEE BEFORE YOU DIE offers a breadth of knowledge and passion for a celluloid century of tanks and trenches, guns and grenades, heart-rending deaths and heroic leadership. So if you love war movies, now is the time to don your flak jacket and begin the march to victory.
