The fiftieth anniversaries of the Second World War that began in 1989 saw an unprecedented re-awakening of interest in the conflict, and nowhere was this more evident than in the outpouring of new films ands television dramas which re-examined almost every aspect of that war. Written by acknowledged experts in the field, Repicturing the Second World War is the first systematic attempt to analyse how the recent productions have extended our understanding, re-shaped our memory, of the most cataclysmic event of the twentieth century. Written by acknowledged international experts in the field, the essays range widely over the experience of war in Europe and America from the homefront to the battlefront. Included are new analyses of such powerful and controversial films as Downfalll, Life is Beautiful, Enemy at the Gates and Tea with Mussolini.
