    I saw Generation Kill...What does that have to do with a "series"?

    Amen. Midway was another. I prefer the ones that treat the subject like the history that it is.

    Most of what I see here are "newer" movies. Hands down, the greatest war movie of all time is PATTON. George C. Scott did a masterful job portraying "old blood and guts".

    a special nod to Schindlers List-disturbing but so real as to garner much thought
