New In the Library: Encyclopedia of War Movies

Encyclopedia of War Movies: the authoritative guide to movies about wars of the twentieth century by Robert Davenport: “Organized alphabetically, the book covers blockbusters like 1986’s Platoon and 1957’s The Bridge on the River Kwai, as well as lesser-known films, such as 1942’s The Devil with Hitler. Understandably, some films get more coverage than others (e.g., Davenport writes only two lines on the plot of 1963’s Face In the Rain, but spends a few pages on 1970’s Patton). Although other books exist on the topic, Davenport’s is the most up-to-date and should please war movie aficionados” (from Publisher’s Weekly).
