  1. I believe that Twelve O'Clock High is by far the best WWII Air Bomber Combat movie ever made from the American POV. It has a all-star cast which includes Gregory Peck.

     

    Command Decision (1948) staring Clark Gable, Walter Pidgeon, Van Johnson and Brian Donlevy is also a really good movie however, I think Twelve O'Clock High is better since it is more focused on the crews members and not the "high brass" calling the shots.

     

    Every time I see the movie I can't help but think of what my uncle went through. He was a WWII 1st Lt Co-pilot in a B-17G and flew 30 missions out of Deenethorpe, England with the 401st BG(H)

     

    Twelve O'Clock High gives a really good taste of what it was like to be a bomber crew member during WWII.

     

    I don't know about you, however, it would be great to see TCM play it some time.
