Ya, Hamburger Hill is a great movie. I like the character "Doc". He's funny.

Band of Brothers. The most accurate protrayal of WWII, because it's more of a blow by blow reenactment of the battles.

I dunno, accurate could be debatable, but all in all, one of my favorites.

Opppps. Forgot Stalingrad; undeniably the battle that turned the tide on the Third Reich.

I can't believe I forgot one of my new favourites especially since I just saw it on Saturday but the movie adaptation of Shake Hands with the Devil the story of the Rwandan genocide. This movie was just as gut wrenching as the book and I can't recommend it highly enough.

my favorites are the ones with good historical accuracy. There is no need to exaggerate the truth because some of these stories are awesome by themselves. I don't have one particular one I like over them all but here are some.

We Were Soldiers (Vietnam)
The Longest Day (WWII)
Black Hawk Down (Somalia)
Gods and Generals (Civil War)
Band Of Brothers (WWII)
All Quiet On The Western Front (WWI)

Just to name a few. BTW all of these were books before they were movies. All of which are worth a read. Personally I would really like it if someone made movie about Carlos Hathcock based on the book Marine Sniper
