Description:

One way to analyze the intensely conflicting feelings Americans hold toward the Vietnam War is to see how the war has been portrayed through film. How the War Was Remembered is the first book to analyze Vietnam War films, beginning with China Gate and ending with Hamburger Hill. Included are analyses of all the major films about the Vietnam War, including Green Berets, The Deerhunter, Apocalypse Now, The Killing Fields, Rambo, Platoon, and Full Metal Jacket, and others. Auster and Quart create a typology of these films based on their connection to sociohistorical currents such as the "Wounded Hero," "Superman," "Hunter/Hero," and "Survivor." They also combine aesthetic analysis with a social, cultural historical critique.
