Movies have depicted and examined the conflict of war again and again. From tales of heroism and valor, to stories of ambivalence and fear, the life or death drama of war has been viewed from many angles.

David Garland presents highlights from several war movie scores, including Elmer Bernstein's "The Great Escape," Jerry Goldsmith's "Patton," Bernard Herrmann's "The Naked and the Dead," John Williams' "Saving Private Ryan," Carmine & Francis Coppola's "Apocalypse Now," Johnny Mandel's "The Americanization of Emily," and Thomas Newman's "Jarhead."
