Abstract
In my Final Year Project I hope to explore war continuity in selected works of war fiction and film. I will be looking at the imperialist conquering of the African Congo and how these events have an effect on the history of future wars, the examples I will be using are World War 2 and The Vietnam War. By doing this I hope to find some links between these periods to demonstrate how war is a repetitive cycle in human history. These past wars may help to get a better picture of how war still goes on today, and from our history, we can get a better idea of how we came to the present and perhaps not make the same mistakes in the future. As the title suggests one question I want to explore is if This Is The End? By which I mean has are slow apocalypse of constant war already begun?
