View a World War II movie approved by your instructor. The choice of movie is up to you, but your instructor will only approve a particular title for one student. So, get approval early in the course. You should choose a movie that makes some effort to protray the reality of war and/or a particular event, but not a documentary. View the movie and read an important (scholarly) book on the same topic. You are welcome to read more than one book on the topic, and you may find journal articles useful, as well. Your paper should be an analysis of the movie based on the scholarly books and articles that you read. For example, you might watch Patton (1970) and then analyze the movie based on your reading of a scholarly biography of Patton such as Carlo D’este’s Patton: A Genius for War or Matin Blumenson’s Patton: The Man Behind the Legend, 1885-1945. Another option is The Longest Day, an epic Hollywood film about the Normandy landings, which you could analyze based on reading Max Hasting’s Overlord, John Keegan’s Six Armies in Normandy, or any number of other excellent books on the Normandy landings. The options are many. Some movies, though, are based on specific books. You may not compare a movie to a book on which it is specifically based. For example, both The Longest Day (1962) and A Bridge too Far (1977) are based on Cornelius Ryan books of the same title. In general, you should choose a movie about a specific historical event or person. Choosing a movie about a fictional, or mostly fictional event, such as Saving Private Ryan, makes analysis difficult, and these films should be considered for this assignment with extreme caution.
In writing your paper, consider the movie. What does it represent well? How accurate a depiction of events does it offer? What liberties do the film makers take in portraying the war? Most film makers use movies to present larger messages or explore particular themes. Male bonding and the pressures of combat, for example, are common themes in war movies as, of course, are calls to patriotism and questions about the sacrifice or futility of war. What themes are explored in the movie you viewed? Always remember that this should be an analytical paper. The first paragraph of your review should contain a brief description of the movie that sets the stage for your analysis by presenting your thesis. Do not summarize the movie in the body of your paper. Analyze it.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
