I think the romantizing of war came way before Hollywood was around. I said the times were romantic, not the war itself. The war was later glorified, however, by the men who had fought in and participated in it. Read any of the stories of the men who fought in it. The glory was in them doing their duties as they saw fit, either side. Their glory was in surviving and returning home to tell of the horrors of war, and also of the heroics of the war. The men made it that way, and Hollywood is just picking up where they left off.Originally posted by Marines
You said it not me. "Romantic"
War is not romantic and nor is it filled with glory and if you had ever served in a combat environment you would know this, if you die you are just that...dead nothing more.
The romantisizing of war is the result of Hollywood and so many people accept this as the way it is and it makes me sick.
