This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the effects World War 2 films had in the U.S. and how they gave viewers ways to know the war. This book discusses the Hollywood films made in the years after the war began but before the U.S. entry into the war and examines the films based on actual events in the Pacific theater after Pearl Harbor and how they linked those events into a coherent narrative. It also looks at the films' portrayal of America's British, Soviet, and Chinese allies and describes the films about countries under Nazi occupation.
