What are the 5 most honest films of the Second World War?

Hmm, sometimes directors can afford little faux pas when you make movies about the WW 2.

Which films do we know the other than the very modern ?

The Longest Day ( 3 directors among others Bernhard Wicki ) were at work for this film and you will learn a lot when you look at the background.Some have stayed in Real that day where they have acted in the film or have served in the war, such as

Richard Todd

The Second World War interrupted his acting activities.In 1941 he was promoted to lieutenant and served from May 1943 in the 7th Parachute Battalion of the British 6th Army.Airborne Division.On the night of June 5-6, 1944, Todd was one of the first Allied soldiers to land in France as part of D-Day.In Operation Tonga, he served in Major John Howard’s unit on the hard-fought Pegasus Bridge and defended it until the arrival of the Lord Lovat-led unengagement force.This encounter was portrayed after the war in two films, in which Richard Todd played an actor. In Cornelius Ryan’s 1962 film The Longest Day, he even portrayed Major Howard.

Eddie Albert (was in the Pacific War)

He served in the U.S. Marines Corps during World War II and took part in the Battle of Tarawa in 1943.He was awarded the Bronze StarMedal for personal bravery in saving seventy comrades.

Otherwise, in my opinion, the following films are still to be recommended, historically not always 100% accurate but close to it

The narrow ridge

The Bridge of Arnhem

Hacksaw Ridge

Tora!Tora! Tora!

Battle of England
