About this book
'This brilliant edited volume provides a necessary critique and update to mainstream war films that have systematically erased women and minorities from their narratives. With chapters on Indian soldiers at Dunkirk, varying and complex portrayals of women in combat, indigenous soldiers, depictions of homosexuality, representations of terrorism, and much more, New Perspectives on the War Film brings together innovative research highlighting not just the changing nature of the war film, but war itself.'
