    Another very good film on WW1 is "They shall never grow old"
    It is all original footage, much of which is colorized. It really gives insight into what those men went thru.

    War Horse is well worth watching. I saw it when it first came out in the theater and it was excellent.

    There is another movie Boer War where British high command sacrificed a couple men for political reasons. Can’t remember the name of it.

    Best movie about WW1 I ever saw. Incredibly moving. I really need to buy that one, but only if they have a “Special Feature” on how they brought all those old movie clips to life with the sounds and color. If you were lucky enough to catch it in an IMAX theatre with the 3D glasses you were virtually transported back in time.

    I remember watching "All Quiet on the Western Front" as a kid (the 1930s version that won the Best Picture Oscar). It was very realistic for its day and definitely impressed me but I haven't seen it in a long time. I will have to watch it again and compare it to "1917".

    1917 was a great movie, first time at a theater for me since Blackhawk Down.
    Check out the Aussie Gallipoli mini series, available on prime. Very good, the Brits were idiots.

    Some of the British leadership were idiots. The higher the rank, the more political the job. It is a universal problem in the armed services of all nations.

    I liked it way better than Dunkirk which I found to be too sureal and totally unbelievable. It was a veratable crime wave of breaking the laws of physics.

    1917 had many unbelievable moments as well, however, I enjoyed it more.
