14 Lies About War You Believe Because of Movies
War is a hellish place where you wear a hard hat, and that’s about everything movies get right about it. That’s sort of understandable -- a movie can have many different goals, but none of them is taking an enemy bunker. Now, this has the side effect that many people have a wildly inaccurate idea of what goes on in an actual battlefield. This is partly good, as it means you were never dodging bullets and explosions (opinions may differ, but we count this as a plus). But do you know what else is good? Not being wrong about shit. That’s why we prepared these, to bomb falsehoods about war into the Stone Age.
