Summary
"Marianna Torgovnick argues that we have lived since the end of World War II, under the power of a war complex - a set of repressed ideas and impulses that stems from our unresolved attitudes toward the technological acceleration of mass death. This complex has led to gaps and hesitations in public discourse about atrocities committed during war itself. And it remains an enduring wartime consciousness, one most recently animated on September 11, 2001." "Showing how different events from World War II became prominent in American cultural memory while others go forgotten or remain hidden in plain sight. The War Complex moves from war films and historical works to television specials and popular magazines to define the image and influence of World War II in our time. Torgovnick also explores the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, the emotional legacy of the Holocaust, and the treatment of World War II's missing history by writers such as W.G. Sebald to reveal the unease we feel at our dependence on those who hold the power of total war."--Jacket
