Themes explored include combat, survival and escape, camaraderie between soldiers, sacrifice, the futility and inhumanity of battle, the effects of war on society, and the moral and human issues raised by war.
War films are often categorized by their milieu, such as the Korean War; the most popular subject is the Second World War.
The stories told may be fiction , historical drama , or biographical. Critics have noted similarities between the Western and the war film.
Nations such as China, Indonesia, Japan, and Russia have their own traditions of war film, centred on their own revolutionary wars but taking varied forms, from action and historical drama to wartime romance.
Subgenres, not necessarily distinct, include anti-war , comedy , animated , propaganda , and documentary.
There are similarly subgenres of the war film in specific theatres such as the Western Desert of North Africa and the Pacific in the Second World War, Vietnam , or the Soviet-Afghan War ; and films set in specific domains of war, such as the infantry, the air, at sea, in submarines or at prisoner of war camps.
Screenwriter and scholar Eric R. The war film genre is not necessarily tightly defined: the American Film Institute , for example, speaks of "films to grapple with the Great War" without attempting to classify these.
The film critic Stephen Neale suggests that the genre is for the most part well defined and uncontentious, since war films are simply those about war being waged in the 20th century, with combat scenes central to the drama.
Both genres use opposing concepts like war and peace, civilization and savagery. War films usually frame World War II as a conflict between "good" and "evil" as represented by the Allied forces and Nazi Germany whereas the Western portrays the conflict between civilized settlers and the savage indigenous peoples.
Film historian Jeanine Basinger states that she began with a preconception of what the war film genre would be, namely that .
What I knew in advance was what presumably every member of our culture would know about World War II combat films—that they contained a hero , a group of mixed types [of people], and a military objective of some sort.
They take place in the actual combat zones of World War II, against the established enemies, on the ground, the sea, or in the air. They contain many repeated events, such as mail call, all presented visually with appropriate uniforms , equipment, and iconography of battle.
Further, Basinger considers Bataan to provide a definition-by-example of "the World War II combat film", in which a diverse and apparently unsuited group of "hastily assembled volunteers" hold off a much larger group of the enemy through their "bravery and tenacity".
Since she notes that there were in fact only five true combat films made during the Second World War, in her view these few films, central to the genre, are outweighed by the many other films that lie on the margins of being war films.
This in turn pushes combat scenes to the climactic ends of war films. James Clarke includes Edward Zwick 's Oscar-winning Glory among the war films he discusses in detail; it is set in the American Civil War , and he lists six other films about that war which he considers "notable".
The military historian Antony Beevor "despair[s]" at how film-makers from America and Britain "play fast and loose with the facts", yet imply that "their version is as good as the truth.
The costliest war in U. One of the earliest films using the Civil War as its subject was D.
Griffith 's silent picture, The Fugitive. Some films deal with the human aspects of the war, such as The Red Badge of Courage ,  or Shenandoah , on the tragedy that the war inflicted on the civilian population.
The first war films come from the Spanish—American War of These non-combat films were accompanied by "reenactments" of fighting, such as of Theodore Roosevelt 's "Rough Riders" in action against the Spanish, staged in the United States.
During the First World War, many films were made about life in the war. Topics included prisoners of war, covert operations, and military training.
Both the Central Powers and the Allies produced war documentaries. The films were also used as propaganda in neutral countries like the United States.
The British film The Battle of the Somme , by two official cinematographers, Geoffrey Malins and John McDowell, combined documentary and propaganda, seeking to give the public an impression of what trench warfare was like.
Much of the film was shot on location at the Western Front in France; it had a powerful emotional impact. It was watched by some 20 million people in Britain in its six weeks of exhibition, making it what the critic Francine Stock called "one of the most successful films of all time".
Wellman 's Wings was the first film in any genre , and the only silent film, to win an Oscar for best picture. What a Lovely War ;  Spielberg's war drama War Horse based on Michael Morpurgo 's children's novel of the same name ;  and the film The Spanish Civil War has attracted directors from different countries.
Sam Wood 's For Whom the Bell Tolls , based on Ernest Hemingway 's book of the same name , portrays the fated romance between an American played by Gary Cooper and a partisan played by Ingrid Bergman against the backdrop of the civil war.
The epic minute film with its landscapes shot in Technicolor and a "beautiful" orchestral score was a success both with audiences and with critics.
No Hollywood films about the Korean War did well at the box office; the historian Lary May suggested in that they reminded American viewers of "the only war we have lost".
In , after the fighting, the successful South Korean action film Piagol about leftist guerrilla atrocities encouraged other film-makers.
The s military government punished pro-communist film-makers and gave Grand Bell Awards to films with the strongest anti-communist message.
Censorship loosened in the s. The Taebaek Mountains dealt with leftists from the south who fought for the communists, while Silver Stallion and Spring in My Hometown showed the destructive impact of American military presence on village life.
Films in North Korea were made by government film studios and had clear political messages.
Similarly, the country's films about the Korean War show victory without help from the Chinese. The film scholar Johannes Schönherr concludes that the purpose of these films is "to portray North Korea as a country under siege", and that since the U.
It was shot on location as an Italo-Algerian co-production. It had the black and white newsreel style of Italian neorealism , and even-handedly depicts violence on both sides.
Few films before the late s about the Vietnam War actually depicted combat;  exceptions include The Green Berets From the late s, independently financed and produced films showed Hollywood that Vietnam could be treated in film.
The film cuts to an American "helicopter-eye view", contrasting painfully with the human tenderness seen earlier. The Iraq War served as the background story of several U.
The first popular Allied war films made during the Second World War came from Britain and combined the functions of documentary and propaganda.
Air Force and U. Navy; the Army made its own through the U. Miniver , which portrayed a British family on the home front;  Edge of Darkness showed Norwegian resistance fighters,  and The North Star showed the Soviet Union and its Communist Party.
The Russians, too, appreciated the propaganda value of film, to publicise both victories and German atrocities.
It depicted civilians helping to defend the city, the parade in Red Square and Stalin 's speech rousing the Russian people to battle, actual fighting, Germans surrendering and dead, and atrocities including murdered children and hanged civilians.
It won an Academy Award in for best documentary. Feature films made in the west during the war were subject to censorship and were not always realistic in nature.
One of the first to attempt to represent violence, and which was praised at the time for "gritty realism", was Tay Garnett 's Bataan The depiction actually remained stylised.
Jeanine Basinger gives as an example the "worst image for stark violence" when a Japanese soldier beheads an American: the victim shows pain and his lips freeze in a scream, yet no blood spurts and his head does not fall off.
Basinger points out that while this is physically unrealistic, psychologically it may not have been.
The wartime audience was, she points out, well aware of friends and relatives who had been killed or who had come home wounded.
The Axis powers similarly made films during the Second World War, for propaganda and other purposes. At over eight million marks, using thousands of soldiers as extras and railway wagonloads of salt to simulate snow, it was the most costly German film made during the war.
The actual siege ended with the surrender of the town; in the film, the French generals abandon the siege. For Japan, the war began with the undeclared war and invasion of China in , which the Japanese authorities called "The China Incident".
The government dispatched a "pen brigade" to write and film the action in China with "humanist values". Japanese film critics worried that even with Western film techniques, their film output failed to represent native Japanese values.
Heroes were typically low-ranking officers, not samurai , calmly devoted to his men and his country.
For Japanese film-makers, war was not a cause but more like a natural disaster, and "what mattered was not whom one fought but how well".
Asian enemies, especially the Chinese, were often portrayed as redeemable and even possible marriage partners. Japanese wartime films do not glorify war, but present the Japanese state as one great family and the Japanese people as an "innocent, suffering, self-sacrificing people".
Dower comments that the perversity of this image "is obvious: it is devoid of any recognition that, at every level, the Japanese also victimized others.
According to Andrew Pulver of The Guardian , the public fascination with war films became an "obsession", with over war films produced in each decade of the s and s.
By the end of the decade the "sense of shared achievement" which had been common in war films "began to evaporate", according to Pulver.
Hollywood films in the s and s could display spectacular heroics or self-sacrifice, as in the popular Sands of Iwo Jima starring John Wayne.
Marines considered Sands of Iwo Jima visually authentic, but found Lewis Milestone's Battle Cry , with its attention to the lives of the men, the more realistic film.
These used the war as a backdrop for spectacular action. Darryl F. Zanuck produced the minute documentary drama The Longest Day , based on the first day of the D-Day landings , achieving commercial success and Oscars.
In Lawrence Suid's view, The Longest Day "served as the model for all subsequent combat spectaculars". Army and Zanuck's "disregard for Pentagon relations" changed the way that Hollywood and the Army collaborated.
Steven Spielberg 's Saving Private Ryan uses hand-held camera, sound design, staging and increased audio-visual detail to defamiliarise viewers accustomed to conventional combat films, so as to create what film historian Stuart Bender calls "reported realism", whether or not the portrayal is genuinely more realistic.
Many war films have been produced with the cooperation of a nation's military forces. The U. Navy carrier. Navy objected to elements of Crimson Tide , especially mutiny on board an American naval vessel, so the film was produced without their assistance.
Still in films such as Xu Xinfu 's Battle Exploits , war featured mainly as background. A more humanistic film set in the same period is Xie Jin 's The Cradle , while more recent large-scale commercial films include Lu Chuan 's City of Life and Death Many Indonesian films deal with the occupation of the archipelago by the Japanese during the Second World War.
Each of these films interprets the past from the perspective of its own time. The more recent Merdeka Freedom trilogy — , starting with Merah Putih "Red and White", the colours of the flag of the new Indonesia , revisits the campaign for independence through the lives of a diverse group of cadets who become guerillas.
Karya's November looks at Indonesia's struggle for independence through historical drama about the Java or Diponegoro War — , though the colonial enemy was the same, the Dutch.
Deanne Schultz considered it "a valuable interpretation" of Indonesian history that "embodies the best of popular Indonesian cinema.
War has been Russian cinema's major genre, becoming known indeed as the "cinema front", and its war films ranged from grim portrayals of atrocities to sentimental and even quietly subversive accounts.
These nationalistic films, including Pride , Merdeka , and The Truth about Nanjing , have emphasized positive traits of the Japanese military and contended that the Japanese were victims of post-war vindictiveness and viciousness.
Such films have, however, drawn protest for revisionism. It broke the record takings for a Japanese live action film,  and won the Golden Mulberry at the Udine Far East Film Festival,  but was criticised for its nationalistic sympathy with kamikaze pilots.
The wartime authorities in both Britain and America produced a wide variety of documentary films. Their purposes included military training, advice to civilians, and encouragement to maintain security.
Since these films often carried messages, they grade into propaganda. Similarly, commercially produced films often combined information, support for the war effort, and a degree of propaganda.
Sergei Eisenstein 's historical drama Alexander Nevsky depicts Prince Alexander 's defeat of the attempted invasion of the Russian city of Novgorod by the Teutonic Knights.
During the Second World War, film propaganda was widely used. Kenneth Clark advised the British government that "If we renounced interest in entertainment as such, we might be deprived of a valuable weapon for getting across our propaganda"; he suggested using documentaries about the war and the war effort; celebrations of Britishness; and films about British life and character.
Michael Powell and Clark agreed on a story about survivors of a U-boat crew, imbued with brutal Nazi ideology, travelling across Canada and meeting various kind, tolerant and intelligent Canadians, to encourage America into the war.
The resulting film, 49th Parallel , became the top film at British offices that year. During the Cold War , "propaganda played as much of a role in the United States' struggle with the Soviet Union as did the billions of dollars spent on weaponry.
Submarine films have their own particular meanings and conventions, concerned specifically with giving the effect of submarine warfare.
A distinctive element in this subgenre is the soundtrack , which attempts to bring home the emotional and dramatic nature of conflict under the sea.
For example, in Wolfgang Petersen 's Das Boot , the sound design works together with the hours-long film format to depict lengthy pursuit with depth charges , the ping of sonar , and threatening sounds such as of the propellors of enemy destroyers and torpedoes.
Run Silent, Run Deep is a movie full of tension, both with the enemy and between the contrasting personalities of the submarine Commander and his Lieutenant, played by Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster.
A popular subgenre of war films in the s and s was the prisoner of war film. Despite episodes of danger and human tragedy, these films delight in a continual boyish game of escape and ingenuity, celebrating the courage and the defiant spirit of the prisoners of war, and treating war as fun.
It was the first, too, to use lush colour to bring out the British stiff upper lip of the colonel, played by Alec Guinness in an Oscar-winning performance.
Charlie Chaplin 's Shoulder Arms set a style for war films to come, and was the first comedy about war in film history.
Screenwriter Eric R. Williams contends that labels such as comedy or drama are too broad to be considered a sub-genre. At 12 minutes long, it was the longest animated film made at that time.
It was probably the first animated propaganda film to be made; it remains the earliest serious animated drama that has survived. The Walt Disney Company , working with the American armed forces, produced , feet of war propaganda films between and ,  including Der Fuehrer's Face and Education for Death Japanese anime films from the s onwards addressed national memories of war.
Akira moves from the atomic destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to apocalyptic visions of global conflict; Grave of the Fireflies is elegiac on the effect of war on children.
It is an artistic approach to telling a story. Williams believes that the taxonomic layers are additive categories, not subcategories.
The same story could be told as a live-action film without affecting the War Film Genre. However, if the sub-genre Prisoner of War was removed from the war film The Great Escape , the movie would be significantly affected.
The anti-war genre began with films about the First World War. Films in the genre are typically revisionist, reflecting on past events and often generically blended.
