Here is the remarkable, untold story of how five major Hollywood directors - John Ford, George Stevens, John Huston, William Wyler, and Frank Capra - changed World War II, and how, in turn, the war changed them. In a move unheard of at the time, the U.S. government farmed out its war propaganda effort to Hollywood, allowing these directors the freedom to film in combat zones as never before. They were on the scene at almost every major moment of America's war, shaping the public's collective consciousness of what we ve now come to call the good fight. The product of five years of scrupulous archival research, "Five Came Back" provides a revelatory new understanding of Hollywood's role in the war through the life and work of these five men who chose to go, and who came back.
