A super one, told from a woman's point of view, is THE PROUD AND THE PROFANE, starring Deborah Kerr and William Holden.
Another terrific WW2 film that takes us "inside" the partisan fighting in Yugoslavia is: FIVE BRANDED WOMEN, starring Vera Miles and Van Heflin.
(Vera Miles wore a wig in PSYCHO, because she had just had her head shaved in a scene while making FIVE BRANDED WOMEN.)
British film, sort of comedic, is DAD'S ARMY, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, set in a little seaside village in England.
Wonderful British tv-series about survival on the home front in an English village is "Home Fires."
