When I was a young child, the boys in my neighborhood used to play war with actual old WWII memorabilia. Movies about WWII were still a big deal as well. Eventually, those boys moved on to other things. Playing cowboys and indians was also about guns and violence. I suppose it's been handed down through the ages, this type of play.
