In Australia: boomers dumb down military history

This flood of material should theoretically contribute to better knowledge and understanding, but there is scant evidence of that. For example, Hollywood has done its best over recent years to convince the rising generation, among other things, that the 13th century Scottish patriot William Wallace had a highly unlikely affair with a French princess (Braveheart) or that Americans rather than the British captured an code machine from a German U-boat (U-571) even though the actual event took place months before the United States entered the war.

And despite the huge volume of factual reports about the present war in Iraq, public opinion surveys in the United States show that many Americans still believe weapons of mass destruction were actually found in Iraq. Who knows what the same survey would show in Australia or Europe.
