When Trumpets Fade (1998; R)

The film revolves around the actions of Private David Manning, a soldier in the 28th Infantry Division who, in order to survive, does just enough to stay out of trouble, but not enough to actually make a difference. HBO's When Trumpets Fade is one of the most underrated war movies; a movie that provides the audience with a close-up look at the brutal reality of combat and insights to what war does to a man.

The film will be introduced by Dr. Ben Severance, professor in the Department of History & World Languages & Cultures, and is co-sponsored by the College of Arts & Sciences.
