    I haven't seen too many recent flicks. Saving Private Ryan comes to mind.

    The Great Escape

    The Green Berets

    Stalag 17

    Tora! Tora! Tora! (Father of a friend of mine flew one of the fake Zeros during filming)

    Battle of Britain

    As far as realistic goes...while not a movie... Victory at Sea

    Full Metal Jacket - the best boot camp sequences of any movie I've seen.
    Saving Private Ryan - enough said.
    Braveheart - Talk about war... jeez... you had to really believe in "the cause" to fight like that!

    Don't believe I've ever heard of it. But I'll check it out and see if any of the local places rent it. Thanks for the recommendation!

    The only reason I watched it was because Kate Beckinsale was in it... and that's the only reason.

    The Band of Brothers series is hands down the best I've seen. And in my opinion depicts the greatest generation of Americans to date.

    I'll second "Glory". Haven't seen it in years, but it was a terrific flick.

    The first half of Full Metal Jacket was hilarious. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be, but the drill sergeant was too funny.
