PG-13| 1 hr. 39 min.

Plot Summary
Since World War II, the United States has been almost constantly involved in combat, active participants in a string of wars fought entirely on foreign shores. Eugene Jarecki's documentary examines this phenomenon outside of partisan bickering, thoughtfully exploring what Eisenhower called "the business of war." Speaking to veterans of wars in Vietnam and Iraq, as well as military experts and journalists, the film discusses defense spending, foreign policy and the military-industrial complex.

    Excellent movie, well done historically and photographically. Objectively rendered and well organized. Very interesting and thought provoking. Should be required viewing for all graduating high school.
