This unique book covers the whole range of British films about the Second World War, right up to The Land Girls (1998). It deals extensively with films made during the war but also offers detailed analysis of the huge numbers of films made after the war. Cinema reflected the all-pervasive nature of the war, and there are chapters devoted to war comedies, the representation of women and romance in relation to the war, and the disturbing legacy of the war on society. Complete with 25 black and white film stills and a comprehensive filmography and bibliography, British Cinema and the Second World War is an important resource for historians and film students alike. Robert Murphy is Professor in Film Studies at De Montfort University. He is the editor of British Cinema of the 90s (BFI Publications) and co-editor of British Crime Cinema (Routledge).
