A fantastic & very realistic movie about soldiers risking their lives to save another.

2 Inglourious Basterds
3 Schindler's List

Amazing movie about the Holocaust

4 Casablanca
5 Patton
6 Das Boot
7 The Boy In The Striped Pajamas

Shows the holocaust from quite a different perspective. Very sad film. - Kronolith

8 The Grave of Fireflies

Arguably a terrific movie from Studio Gibli.Most WW2 films are based on one-sided official WW2 version and most of them demonize the Axis powers like they are maniacs. - CerealGuy

9 Enemy at the Gates
10 Hacksaw Ridge

How is it so low - SoldierOfFortune

This movie is so good I recomond watching it

The Newcomers

? Dunkirk

The Contenders

11 Fury

Fury was a good movie but movie made after world 2 and like fury with the new graphics make them great Hacksaw ridge will be up in the top 10 but the movies that JOHN WAYNE made will always be the real great films of world war 2 they made feel good and new we were fighting for something yes they were not the best written but it got the word out.

12 The Pianist
13 Kelly's Heroes
14 The Guns of Navarone
15 The Dirty Dozen
16 The Final Countdown

Not a lot of Sci-Fi movies about WW2, but this one has an intriguing concept!

Not many WW2 movies feature a Sci-Fi theme, but this one offers an intriguing concept; time travel of a modern warship back to 1941.

17 The Longest Day

The biggest all star cast, the biggest on film spectacle, about one of the most important days in human existence, impeccably directed. A must see for fans of the genre, or really movie fans of any kind.

18 The Bridge on the River Kwai

Quite possibly the most-inspirational "whistling theme" in the history of cinema.

19 The Big Red One
20 To Hell and Back
