War theatre 

Be the 1st to vote.

The battles we got to see from WW2 were probably pure Hollywool. What actually happened to the men that never came back isn’t properly documented. 

One could surmise that filming real battles was too dangerous or didn’t suit propaganda purposes.

    All the world’s a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players;
    etc etc etc

      Yes, that quote is very true. Also it feels like we live in a reverse Truman Show where people don’t realize they are actors in life unlike in the movie where the actors knew they were actors acting out roles in the fictional reality of the Truman Show.

    Good point about how dangerous it is to film war battles. Why would anyone risk their life filming battles during war? You look at pictures from World War I and World War II and you see a photographer was available to snap pictures of battles scenes. Are we to believe these photographers were off limits for killing during battles in war? No way. These photographers taking pictures during World War I and World War II would have been killed more easily than soldiers taking cover from enemy fire.

    I like the pictures from World War I that come from photographers that are above the trenches while the soldiers are in the trenches trying to not to take enemy fire or at least shielding themselves while returning fire towards the enemy. To me that is laughable. The photographer would have been shot easily being above the trench. It’s obvious that those are staged scenes.

    What about World War II? Cameras were somehow rolling during the Pearl Harbor attack? Again that makes no sense why some guy is ok with photographing a foreign attack that involves bombs and bullets where the person could easily have been killed being out in the open making sure to photograph all the destruction.

    Also isn’t it a tell when they call it the Atlantic Theatre and the Pacific Theatre during World War II? How is that appropriate for a war where we are led to believe millions died?

    I think a lot of soldiers that do die during a war is because of friendly fire.
