  1. While all good films, your list is a bit US-Centric. Some other war films that deserve to be considered: Cross of Iron, Come And See, Letters from Iwo Jima, Stalingrad, Brotherhood of War, Downfall, The Dambusters, All Quiet On The Western Front, Paths Of Glory, Lawrence of Arabia, Zulu, Waterloo.

  2. “They Were Expendable” should have made that cut. A John Ford classic. Mr. Wayne later stated that he felt out of his depth surrounded by combat veterans in the making of the movie. John Ford’s exploits on Midway were well known, but the star was also a USN Commander and PT Boat skipper. The writer was none other than Spig Wead. He was only convinced to write the screenplay after being talked into it by CDR Ford and Medal of Honor winner, John Bulkely, the actual CDR of Torpedo Boat Squadron 3 in the Phillippeans.
