The silent casualty: documentaries and the environmental impact of war - Talks about the devastating impact war has on the environment: an issue that not always has been fully taken into consideration. Nonetheless, the interest of historians and film-makers for the topic has been increasing steadily over time. The forests and fields destroyed by the Americans in Vietnam, the oil wells set on fire by the Iraqis in Kuwait, the Yugoslav factories bombed by Nato air raids are just some of the possible examples of war-related environmental disasters. This article aims at showing some striking cases as they are depicted, beyond traditional historiography, in documentary films and at explaining the main issues at stake from the professional historian’s point of view.

Keywords: Documentaries, War, Environment, Vietnam, Kuwait, Kosovo.

Parole chiave: Documentari, Guerra, Ambiente, Vietnam, Kuwait, Kosovo.
