For the PDA #3 Assignment I would like you to view ONE of the following films pertaining to World War Two and submit a MINIMUM length response of One FULL Page that addresses the following:
1. Based upon your knowledge of World War Two, is this film accurate regarding its portrayal of the conflict? Why or why not?
2. Why do you believe we are still so interested in the history and stories of World War Two? How do you believe the time period this film was made influenced changing perceptions of World War Two over time? (For example, what are some of the themes displayed in a 1990s film regarding WWII that perhaps have more to do with what was going on in America in the 1990s than the 1940s?)
