Reply To: WWII Films and Documentaries?


Thank you. Das Boot is one movie I haven’t seen I’ve always wanted to see. I’ll be sure to watch that one. I remember the first time I saw Enemy at the Gates and I know the scene you’re talking about. It blew me away when I saw it. I’m planning to watch Ken Burns’ documentary, the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers and The Pacific, then all the highly rated films, either chronologically by setting or by chronologically in the European theater and then chronologically in the Pacific theater.

Perhaps over time you could amend the courses so that with each lecture you could mention any films, documentaries, or series that fit the subject matter along with any positive or negative opinions you might have.
