...been going back and watching or re-watching a ton of war movies, if anyone's got some suggestions, let me know... though at a rate of 6-7 a week, I think I've almost covered the genre)...
AHHH! You've come to the right place. I'm going to assume you've seen most of the more modern greats, Band of Brothers, Das Boot, The Great Escape (if it's in color, it's modern) etc. Not sure how far back you're willing to go, or if you can stand black and white and a 3x4 aspect ratio. If you can...Battleground
One of my favorites.Destination Tokyo
Great sub movie Sahara
Bogie at his bestRun Silent, Run Deep
Another excellent sub movie. Gable and Lancaster this time.Five Graves To Cairo
A real sleeper. Not a lot of action but a slick mystery with a nice twist at the end. It's a wonderful and clever movie that should not be missed. The Enemy Below
Tense duel between destroyer captain Robert Mitchum and U-Boat commander Kurt Jurgens.Stalag 17
Excellent German POW camp drama. William Holden with a great cast of supporting actors. (AT EASE!)Sands of Iwo Jima
John WayneThe Dam Busters
True story of the ingenious British bombing technique used to destroy the Ruhr river dams and flood the heart of the German industrial complex. I believe many of the shots of the bombing tests are the actual tests, not scenes staged for the movie.Bataan
Another great ensemble cast.
There are, of course, many more but I gotta go eat breakfast. Good to see your name pop up again, Bren.
