Hollywood has had a history of making World War II films during the war itself from the years of 1942 to 1945.

Media and the Military During the Vietnam War the media was left unchecked and brought the wartime images of death and carnage into America's living room. These images served as morale killers and eventually turned much of the public against its own government. During the Gulf War on the other hand, the military filtered what reached the public's eye and morale was kept to all time highs. In wartime the government should be able to manipulate public opinion by controlling the media. War is not pretty, and it is not for the weak at heart.
In Hedges' first chapter of the book titled, "The Myth of War," he talks about how the press often shows and romanticizes certain aspects of war. In war there is a mythic reality and a sensory reality. In sensory reality, we see events for what they are. In mythic reality, we see defeats as "signposts on the road to ultimate victory" (21), Chris Hedges brings up an intriguing point that the war we are most used to seeing and hearing about (mythic war )is a war completely different than the war the soldiers and journalists experience ( sensory war), a war that hides nothing.
