An analysis of Australian war cinema since the 1980s, exploring themes and developments. It critiques both Australian Anzac film and the cult of Anzac behind it that contributes to a narrow view of the nature of Anzac. A detailed critique of eight feature films about Australian involvement in wars from the Boer War to Vietnam offers specific examples of both mythologising and alternatives to mythologising in Australian war cinema.
