    Here is my list. I added a middle category of "OK films" or it would have been too long...

    Movies I like
    A Bridge Too Far
    The Steel Bayonet
    Das Boot
    The Longest Day
    Where Eagles Dare
    Valkyrie
    The Hill
    The Dawn Patrol (the 1930 version with Douglas Fairbanks Jr is better than the 1938 one with Errol Flynn, but both are great versions of the same film)
    The Wooden Horse
    Aces High
    The Great Escape
    The Train
    Western Approaches (Nice as it was filmed with real Merchant Navy veterans in all roles)
    I also like Target for Tonight for the same reason

    Movies that were OK
    Saving Private Ryan
    Band of Brothers
    The Pacific
    Schindler´s List
    The Battle of Britain
    Patton
    The Dirty Dozen
    Force 10 from Navarone
    The Guns of Navarone
    Tora! Tora! Tora!

    Shit
    The Battle of El Alamein (1969) (My vote for worst ever war film)
    Pearl Harbor
    Battle of the Bulge
    Enemy at The Gates
    Big Red One
    Kelly's Heroes
    A Yank in the RAF
    Windtalkers

    Nothing too controversial I fancy

    I guess I can't get away from the fact it's Luke Skywalker in WW2

    PS I'm more of a horror fan than a war movie fan anyway. Well, horror movies and 1950s sci-fi B movies... which are all great

    I'm going to add one more film to my list even though it's not WW.
    Gettysburg,
    the filming of Pickets Charge is simply fantastic and breathtaking.
    Quote from the movie
    Bobby Lee speaking to Longstreet "to be a good soldier you must love the army,to be a good general you must be prepared to destroy the thing that you love"
    To true Bobby Lee.
    Cheers all.
