Jean Renoir’s film La Grande Illusion (1937) is a brilliant film set in a prisoner-of-war camp during the First World War.
A recent book by Martin O’Shaughnessy reexamines this classic film:
Martin O’Shaughnessy. La Grande Illusion (London and New York: I.B. Tauris, 2009).
This book may interest some students in HIST 390 History and Film: War in Film.
