In prewar America, Hollywood's relationship with Washington was tense. When war came, the propaganda effort to win the hearts and minds of American soldiers and civilians was vital. The effort was dominated by five directing legends: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. After experiencing the war in all its facets, they produced a body of work that was essential to how Americans perceived the war.--Excerpted from book jacket flaps.
