Vietnam War Movies Synopsis

From 'The Deer Hunter' to 'Platoon', the Vietnam cycle of films that America has been producing since the 1970s has had an impact on audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. This book offers an overview of the genre, including such films as 'Full Metal Jacket', 'Platoon', 'Rambo: First Blood' and 'Apocalypse Now'. Aiming to show the ways these films operate as fantasy wish-fulfilment, an attempt to come to terms with the war, and as simply an opportunity for action, this book will appeal to all viewers, students and fans of the Vietnam War film.
