Writing to describe useful extracts

    I will be teaching the AQA Eng Lang GCSE CA 'Use a film genre as the basis of a piece of writing' and am going to do the war genre, as I'll then be going on to teach the conflict poetry cluster. Just wondering whether anyone had any recommendations of extracts describing war (I'm going to use an extract from 'Heroes' by Robert Cormier, for example) or any film/images that could be used as inspiration?

    Many thanks,

    The much-used opening of Saving Private Ryan?
    There's so much stuff for this, I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for that's not in the resource bank. Tons of schemes on war poetry.
    Also, don't miss the great animation of Dulce et Decorum Est on Youtube.

    Duffy's War Photographer is good... there is an amazing panning shot in Atonement that lasts for several minutes on the beach... all the soldiers preparing etc.
