* Die Brucke
* Is Paris burning
* Objective Burma
Just finished watching Decision Before Dawn (1951).
To me another great less known war movie.

I can't believe I haven't posted in this thread yet, Mine are
Letters from Iwo jima
There's so many to choose from, but I do have three all time favorites.
*All Quiet on the Western Front (1930 version)
Downfall is a great movie. A Bridge Too Far is perhaps my favorite of all time.
Maybe a bit obscure. But 2 of my favourites are largely Unheard of. Number one is. There's is the glory. 1945 British attempt at re telling .arhnem. The twist is they used the survivors of the original battle as extras. And stalingrad ....or dogs do you want to live forever. Again an early film 1954 German language using much original equipment. Superb battle scenes.
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
I posted on another thread on the same subject, but missed this one, so again for me,
Charge of the light brigade
Went the day well
Ice Cold in alex
All quiet on the western front-both versions
A bridge too far
The eagle has landed
Where eagles dare
The battle of Britain
Escape from Colditz
The wooden horse
The great escape
Saving private ryan, even though parts of it bug the feck out of me
and so many others I can't be arsed to type any more of them at this time, probably missed loads
Whatever its just an opinion.
Great to see Ice Cold in Alex on a list.
I had listed it on the more recent thread-great character study with fine actors driving it-and the exquisite Sylvia Syms-comes on TV here every now and again-'Sea of Sand' is also pretty good in the same sort of vein.
