|The finest compliment I have ever received, and I have now refceived three almost identical ones, came from a combat veteran. To paraphrase: Most of these presentations glorify war, it is ugly to those of us who have experianced it, you presented it as it was.
I hate the "Rambo" mentality, I highlight just how ugly it really was. Let the students know about how the soldiers and civilians suffered. Explain the horror of the hospitals and the battlefield and then explain how those men kept going back in knowing full well the horror of it. THings haven't changed that much in the scheme of things when it comes to warfare. Understanding a little about what those men faced and soldiers have always faced can go a long way in planting an interest. And an interest in more than just the CW, but in human chrachter.
