Chapter 8: A two-way street: the leader-follower dynamic in Glory and Twelve O’Clock High
This chapter comparatively analyzes the films Twelve O’Clock High and Glory, which rank among cinema’s most interesting and compelling treatments of leadership. Both films had a significant impact on public awareness of certain facets of combat experience and military history. Warner blends leadership theory with analysis of cinematic factors, such as dialogue, storyline, characterization, cinematography, mise en scène and sound, to demonstrate the ways that such elements combine to create powerful, thought-provoking and nuanced portrayals of leadership (and of leader-follower relations) in the context of war.
