      If I had to name only one, it'd be La 317eme Section, a french movie about the Indochina War, most realsitic I ever saw.

      Here's a small clip (no subtitles though)

        Band of Brothers.

        Why not Shaving Ryan`s Privates.... I mean... Saving Private Ryan???

        Simply that Band of Brothers was wonderfully complete and longer. Both are masterpieces.

                Yeah, they didn't have Dale Dye, but they did have the Department of the Army. That's a decent technical advisor....

                          Looks like ive struck a chord.

                          My second pick would be between the two German films named "Stalingrad"{Both versions} & the "Winter War"

                              Great movie. I never understood why so many people didnt like this movie. Just because it focuses on the mental side of things with the main characters and it isnt blood and gore the whole way through, doesnt mean it isnt a great movie.
