World War II has been a major movie topic since the war started! Movies not only helped tell the story of the war, but were also used as propaganda and in fund raising. In addition, people learned about what was going on in the war through government created newsreeels tat ran before motion pictures. Since the war, countless Hollywood films have been set in World War II, and even more documentaries have been made about every aspect of the conflict. Why not give some a whirl?
Taft’s faves? Saving Private Ryan, Dunkirk, Unbroken, The Imitation Game, Midway, Patton, Tora! Tora!Tora!, and most documentaries. The series of Band of Brothers an The Pacific are awesome as well!
