Hamburger Hill is a classic!

I like this list too, but would add "The Longest Day", and Kelly's Heroes.

I don't know, it hasn't gotten here yet. I literally ordered it 1 minute before I posted that.

Watch The Hunted w/Tommy Lee Jones and Benecio Del Toro. It's a good movie.

Couple of oldies-

Zulu
Breaker Morant
Hope and Glory (civilian side of life in a war zone)
Das Boot
84Charlie Mopic


There was also a series on PBS several years ago about a British EOD unit during WW 2 in England- "Danger UXB". I have the box set.

Way back in ROTC, they advised us to see two movies that the Army considered worthy of a war film.

- Pork Chop Hill w Gergory Peck was one and I forget the other. Primary/Secondary Target Lines etc. Personally, kinda liked The Thin Red Line.
