Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From dust jacket: World War I may have been the most important event of the early 20th century: it shelled the Victorian synthesis and decimated a lost generation.

At first, the motion picture industry avoided the conflict but then discovered that both ground warriors and aviators fascinated the public in an era when motion picture attendance was on the rise. In this study of feature films and documentaries, Hollywood's World War I traces America's changing views over five decades, as filmmakers have focused on a crisis that still reverberates in our civic and spiritual lives.
