Filmic constructions of war heroism have a profound impact on public perceptions of conflicts. In this book, contributors examine the ways motifs of gender and heroism in war films are used to justify specific ideological positions, shape the understanding of the past and current military conflicts, support political agendas and institutions, and influence collective memory. Using a variety of methods and models, they explore how the films create heroes/heroines and propagate them in diverse cinematic forms by establishing male heroism in combat and portraying the heroism of women in non-combat situations but in a context of war.Bristow, Nancy K. a€œReview of Victory Girls, KhakiWackies, and Patriotutes: The Regulation of Female Sexuality during World War II by Marylin E.
