Great War & Battle Movies and Documentaries

Post by Winston » June 9th, 2010, 11:02 am

Check out this D-Day massacre scene at the beginning of "Saving Private Ryan". It's very intense and shows how insane and gruesome war is.

Check out this 4 hour PBS documentary about the French Indian War of the 1700's called "The War That Made America". It's very exciting and the British uniforms are so pretty and magnificent, and the Indians look so exotic and wild. lol. It's like watching a four hour version of "The Last of the Mohicans" and covers the battles between the British and French, and their Indian allies during the 7 years war in the 1700's, which took place on four continents, not just America.

If you are into military history or American colonial history, this is a must see. It's very exciting and captivating. The nature environment is so beautiful too. I love Wild West films and documentaries. They give me a sense of nostalgia, as though I had a past life there.

The War That Made America, Part 1 of 4:



Here also is a great near four hour documentary about the Indian Wars in the 1700's and 1800's. It's very good and informative.

"Why We Fight" - A series of 7 war propaganda films created by the US Dept of War and Walt Disney films during the early 1940's, to explain to the American public why their involvement in WW2 was necessary and a just cause. Though they're very one sided of course and makes the Axis Powers out to be cartoon villains, still they're very convincing, persuasive, and easy to understand. In them, you can see how the US was far better at making propaganda during those days than it is today.

This is so watchable that even children can understand it, and the maps and animation are very clear and easy to follow. The way these films are narrated by Frank Capra sound like the voice of a loving good father explaining to his children why this war is just and a good cause. It's very Disney-esque in that sense too. It's a very impressive propaganda piece and you wonder why the US government was so much better at this kind of thing in the past. Why doesn't it put out such convincing war propaganda today? The propaganda it puts out today for the Iraq war sucks and is not convincing to anyone.

Here's the playlist or all 7 films:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... TlFQC7H2rU

Here are a few of my favorite ones:

The Battle of Russia - This one is about the Nazi invasion in Russia, and goes over Russia's people, and its history of invasions. I thought it'd be boring, but it's actually pretty good and informative. The narrator explains everything clearly and presents very well. And he explains why we need to help save Russia.



The Battle of Britain - Explains why Britain is the lone standing power in Europe and we need to aid and assist them.



The Battle of China - Explains the situation the Chinese are in and why we need to help save them from Japanese invasion.

Check out this awesome epic documentary series called "Rome: The Rise and Fall of an Empire" by the History Channel. Here is the playlist for all 13 episodes on YouTube.

Rome: The Rise and Fall of an Empire
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... sq7LKpCgOC

Description:

The Roman Empire was the largest and most powerful in history, but how did ancient Rome achieve its greatness? And why did it eventually collapse? In this epic series, we explore these questions, following the most dramatic Roman characters as they lead an empire slowly sliding to its own destruction and the Barbarian leaders who brought about that destruction. We vividly recreate the living environment of the time: teeming Roman streets, struggling armies, gladiators, Roman excesses and debauchery, the camps and villages of the barbarians, and the deeply human struggle of outsiders to conquer and Romans to survive.

The award winning history documentary director Ken Burns has just put out his latest masterpiece. It's a 10 episode, 18 hour series about the Vietnam War and is very in depth. All history buffs are raving about it as the best war documentary of all time. It goes over all the complexities of the war and how it affected America, deeper than any other documentary ever has. El_Caudillo told me about it. I think you can watch it for free on PBS. Here is the link to see all 10 episodes.

All the history film buffs on Imdb are raving about it. It has a 9.2 rating. Wow! Very few films get that high of a rating.
