Deals with the full range of human figure shots from the long shot to the extreme close - up. Considers the framing of shots when two people are involved and then those containing three, four and more people. Presents modern warfare from the soldier's point of view. Stresses the number of men killed in taking one military objective. Shows how during World War II the people of San Pietro were too stunned to realize they had been liberted.
