Not a bad film amongst this lot and at a shade over £2 a film. Das Boot (especially is the dogs)

Das Boot (Dir. Wolfgang Peterson) (1981): Das Boot is a graphic and gripping tale that follows the daring patrol of U-96, one of the famed German U-Boats known as 'The Grey Wolves'. Prowling the North Atlantic, they challenged the British Navy at every turn. The crew abroad the U-96 is portrayed in a desperate life-and-death struggle, coping with life beneath the waves quickly gives way to terror when confronting the enemy...

Bridge On The River Kwai (Dir. David Lean) (1957): Set in Burma during World War II, the story tells of British P.O.Ws who are forced to build a large bridge for the Japanese, while a British Commando team is sent to destroy it. Winner of seven Academy Awards.

Guns Of Navarone (Dir. J. Lee Thompson) (1961): Exciting war film based on a novel by Alistair Maclean, which tells of the attempts of a British raiding team to sabotage two giant German guns on a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. Carl Foreman brought Allistar MacLean's best-selling novel to the screen, winning nominations for seven Academy Awards in 1961.

All Quiet On The Western Front (Dir. Delbert Mann) (1980): A devastating story of war and a generation destroyed. In 1914 a group of German schoolboys, idealistic and inflamed with youthful patriotism, set off to fight in the "glorious" war. During their brutal basic training disenchantment begins. Then, boarding a train for the front, they see the wounded being rushed back to the hospitals, and they begin to grasp the grim reality of war. On their first night in action they come under heavy attack. In the trenches, they begin to fall. Their youth is stripped away by the violence, and the boys become as sullen as veterans.

Sands Of Iwo Jima (Dir. Allan Dwan) (1949): Blazing action and spectacle are on the menu as battle-toughened sergeant John M Stryker (John Wayne) prepares a group of soldiers for action in the Pacific. The men have got their biggest test ahead on Iwo Jima where they have to inch their way up Mt. Suribachi under constant Japanese fire.

Could you really watch River Kwai over and over? One of the most boring films ever. Hardly worth watching the once.

I love Das Boot too mate , i am going to recommend an amazing book to you to read which is very much in the same style its called Iron Coffins and was written by one of the few surviving U-boat Kapitans about his unbeliveable time and how he some how survived it . It reads like a story not as a bunch of facts and the tension when they are getting depth charged by british destroyers or Sunderland Flying boats has you on the edge of yer seat even moreso than the film .
Its a close second to the best ever war memoir The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer .
