American Exceptionalism in War Films

For some reason, the Christmas season always reminds me of war films. I assume this is due to the fact a number of Christmas films are directly tied to America's involvement in wars, especially WWII. I'm thinking specifically of Bing Crosby's White Christmas and Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life. 

This is also likely due to the fact I spent many Christmases at my grandparents' home and my grandfather was a WWII Vet.

In any event, this came across my news feed recently and though it's 3 years old, I thought I'd share it with readers.
