21 Das Boot
22 Tears of the Sun
23 The Dogs of War

Great story about a great day. I've watched this in theaters, on tape and now DVD. Best war movie ever on recounting a great event. Excellent book also.

25 Three Kings
26 Stalingrad
27 Ivan's Childhood
28 Hamburger Hill

It's non-stop action and based on real events.

29 Stalag 13
30 The Thin Red Line

Soon to be a cult-classic with one of the eeriest, most thought-provoking war-lover warrior performances on record given by Nick Nolte. This movie darn near made Adrien Brody's career. It left the taste of what Guadacanal must have been like. -

31 Empire of the Sun

Good movie!

32 Guns of Navarone
33 The Great Raid
34 Gallipoli
35 Sands of Iwo Jima
36 The Big Red One

"The best WWII movie. Raw, poetic and humanist".

37 The Bridge at Remagen

George Segal's at his best, plus Robert Vaughn [Man from UNCLE] as the German officer who agonizes over Hitler's suicidal orders toward war's end. Great action sequences give credence to the folly and horrible futility that is war. -

Please you'd send fully this movie to my email if you don't mind because it is the movie I like the best and I want to save and keep then I often watch this movie.
Best regard
