Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Sabaton}} mixes this up with WarIsHell, writing as they do about real warfare. "To Hell and Back" takes the Tennyson approach - while lamenting the costs of war, it also makes a point to glorify the soldiers who went into the fire.
-->Bright, a white light, if there'd be any glory in war
-->Let it rest, on men like him, '''who went to hell and came back!'''

* ''Film/{{Glory}}''. WhatItSaysOnTheTin. Black soldiers, many of them former slaves, go down fighting against slavery.

* ''Film/TheWindAndTheLion'' is ''made'' of this trope, with pretty much every character (be they TheodoreRoosevelt, the Raisuli or the [[ColonelBadass Marine Captain]]) eager for armed conflict. Topped off by the Captain's comment:

It's exciting. It makes you a stronger, better person. It breeds {{Badass|Army}}es. [[Theatre/{{Pippin}} It's finer than Spring.]] The sacrifices may be extreme, but are extremely noble, maybe even saintly. In many ways the opposite of WarIsHell. [[BloodKnight Some people deeply enjoy waging war]], rather than just endure it. Others might say, "LookWhatICanDoNow."

" The ShellShockedVeteran might have a different view on the matter, though.



--> ''"There was an artist called Michelangelo during the Renaissance. He was asked once how he worked. He simply said, I take a stone and chip off all the unnecessary bits. Got it? Beauty is something without unnecessary bits, without any rubbish. In war, there is only life and death, nothing unnecessary. War itself is beauty."''

* Oh heck [[HumansAreWarriors practically everyone's mythology]].



* Many games, especially those in the FirstPersonShooter genre, are included in this trope. Even those that [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing pay lipservice]] to a WarIsHell {{Aesop}} can't escape [[GameplayAndStorySegregation these themes being undermined]] by the fact that the player is presumably undertaking a simulation of war for fun.
** In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', war is not only glorious, but ''funny'' [[IncrediblyLamePun as hell]], given all the people involved in the Gravel War (which as more of a MobWar between two extremely rich brothers that control thousands of corporations and outfit their mercenary armies in hats) are [[CrazyAwesome eccentric nutcases]] [[WorldOfHam who love yelling and swearing]] regardless of their backstories and nationalities.
