I don't particularly like war films as much as romantic films, but if i had to choose these are my personal favorite war films:

1. Mrs. Miniver (actually one of my favorite filmsof all time)

2. Gone With the Wind

3. The Best Years of our Lives

4. Days of Glory

5. Sergeant York

6. How Green was my Valley

7. For Me and My Gal

8. A Guy Named Joe

9. Lord of the Rings:Return of the King (only b/c of that scene where Orlando Bloom kills all those people on that olaphant and then slides down its trunk while its dying. What a beautiful scene.)

10. Since You Went Away

Only 10??


Some of these are all time, some are just my favorites, I suppose.

After the top 4, the listed movies are all tied for 5th.


1."Paths of Glory"

2."Best years of our Lives" (If it is considered a war movie)


4."From Here to Eternity


"Destination tokyo"

"A walk in The Sun"

"All Quiet on the Western Front"

"Purple Heart"

"Guadacanal Story" (any war movie that william Bendix is in, really, those are all really good)


"(something) Mr Allison" (with Deorah Kerr and Robert Mitchum)

"the Men" (if it is considered a war movie)


How many is that?

There are a million more, 10 was a sadisticly low number to limit us to:)

--If it is not cheating, I might come back and enter a second 10 to this voting.

This is a good topic, people are coming up with good lists.
