Everyone loves Paths of Glory, Stanley Kubrick's 1957 film too-often described as "anti-war." Mike and Dan talk about how this incredibly cynical film is more "anti-human" than "anti-war" and get into an argument about the ending--their first knock-down debate since they did Cold War about two years ago. Which of them is correct about the meaning of the singing German? Storm the Anthill and find out!
