Film is Like a Battleground: Sam Fuller’s War Movies is the first book to focus on the genre that best defined the American director’s career: the war film. It draws on previously unexplored archival materials, such as Fuller’s Federal Bureau of Investigation files and WWII-era 16mm films, to explore the director’s lifelong interest in making challenging, thought-provoking, and often politically dangerous movies about war.
