Difficult to answer. Goodwin's is more classical WAR music with marches and stuff. Goldsmith often goes into the psychology of the war mechanisms and players themselves . Both have their value, for different reasons. But I guess if I were to choose from what I prefer to listen to, I would pick Goldsmith.

“The Tunnel” (Playhouse 90)

A Gathering of Eagles

In Harm’s Way

Von Ryan’s Express

Morituri

The Blue Max

The Sand Pebbles

Patton

Tora! Tora! Tora!

MacArthur

Masada

Inchon

Rambo: First Blood Part 2

Lionheart

Rambo III

 

I guess First Blood and The Last Castle are a bit of a stretch. And there are other military scores not involving war exactly as the main focus, like Twilight’s Last Gleaming and Damnation Alley. Stuff where war is tangential like QBVII and the two episodes of The Loner. And then there are things with battles, like First Knight and Timeline...but I don’t know if they qualify as full on war. So...anything I’m missing?

Chalk and cheese, JS.

I love THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN and WHERE EAGLES DARE, but I also love Jerry's war scores.

It's a tie.

 

Not an option.
