Re: Boot Camp Films

"Anyone's Son Will Do" is part of the Gwynne Dyer series, "War,"
which was produced in 1984 (I believe) and broadcast on PBS. There
is an accompanying book, also by Dyer, with the same title, "War".
This is an excellent series, by the way, although a bit dated
considering it was produced when only the most prescient among us had
a sense of the pending implosion of the Soviet Union and the breakup
of the Warsaw Pact. Jim Dowd
