My majors are History and English. I am a BLS student and have a keen interest in history. This course is the culmination of all my hard work in the history department. My topic is “Courage and Cowardice as Depicted in WWI Films.”

The topic centers around four of my favorite films about the Great War. These films are Flyboys (2006), Paths of Glory (1957), Testament of Youth (2014) and The Lost Battalion (2001).  I will examine these films and the events and individuals they depict for accuracy in order to determine if the filmmakers “got it right.”
