The conflict of war has been depicted and examined again and again in movies. 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," Vivian Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket," Hans Zimmer's "The Thin Red Line," and the television shows "Combat!" and "The Rat Patrol."
