War- not as entertainment or infotainment (1)
"And some thought war to be absurd after WWII- here was a reason why. See also Dr Strangelove, A Hard Rains a Gonna Fall, It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)."
The World At War - Special Collectors Edition [DVD]
"Definitive WWII documentary. Obligatory viewing and sometimes in colour, thus negating The Second World War in Colour."
Tokyo Olympiad [VHS]
"Ichikawa's war classics The Burmese Harp & Fires on the Plain are disturbingly unavailable."
"Choose this over Life is Beautiful and Schindler's List, please..."
If This Is a Man / The Truce
"This should be read by everyone."
Cold War: Volume 1 - Iron Curtain [VHS]
"Remember when the BBC made programmes prior to the History Zone or bulk repeats of The Entertainers or I Love 1982 with Stuart Maconie and some other nobody."
Christ Stopped at Eboli (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Very good film adaptation also- sadly unavailable."
"More relevant than ever."
Casualties Of War [DVD]
"The effects of Nam on morality- see also the bombing of Cambodia, My-Lai etc."
The Naked and the Dead (Flamingo modern classics)
"Mailer's World War II classic."
The Plague (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Camus's brilliant allegory of occupation."
Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)
"How should war crimes be dealt with?- don't ask the US, who have opted out of the ICC."
"Vile stuff- but a million times more honest than schmaltz like Life is Beautiful & Schindler's List. Definitely the Nazi zeitgeist."
Hiroshima (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Detail of the dropping of the first atom bomb: a severe weapon of mass destruction."
The Thin Red Line [VHS] 
"Terence Malick's brilliant war film, far superior to Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan or drivel like Band of Brothers."
Six Armies in Normandy: From D-Day to the Liberation of Paris
"Better read this than watch Spielberg's hyper-reality- ooh, the opening 20minutes are more real than the real thing- F*ck Off!"
"I've got issues with the admittidly brilliant film; here is the book that it was based on. A major achievment."
The Deer Hunter [DVD] 
"A key Vietnam film- the Russian roulette notion more symbolic than actual."
The Man in the High Castle (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Alternate end to WWII- ripped off for Fatherland."
Europa Europa [VHS] 
"Bizarre true story."
Das Boot - The Directors Cut  [VHS]
"One of the finest WWII war films and evidence that German's were human's also."
Empire Of The Sun :
"Ballard's brilliant semi-autobiographical novel. Avoid Spielberg's film (unless you want to discuss camerawork)"
"Read this rather than watching the silly film Enemy at the Gates."
The Killing Fields [VHS]
"Bruce Robinson's brilliant screenplay depicting the world created by Nobel Peace Prize Winner Henry Kissinger. Perhaps this is why the ICC is a bad idea in American eyes?"
Three Kings [VHS] (1999)
"Hardcore satire- has now been replaced by jingoism and films that lie, such as We Were Soldiers & Black Hawk Down. Bring on the fireworks show! (and the 4th biggest oil reserve in the world)."
