    Not to add to the list of my favourite, but I did like the attention for details on the German uniforms at the begining of the film !

    it seems that one of the war movies I like the most (together with the obvious Cross of Iron) is not that well know, although it has been mentioned above - it is German movie Stalingrad.

    I would very much recommend it to all of you who have not seen it. Although it cannot compare, as regards the budget etc., with for example Private Ryan and other hollywood movies, it is really quite a pesimistic, sad and powerful movie, without any place for "heroes" or other hollywood stuff.

    Using original equipment and uniforms too, a great film I would recommend. Also known as "Dogs do you want to live forever"!

    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
