Take Ten: War Movies

If you’re looking for something to binge-watch this weekend, why not watch a few war movies in observation of Veterans’ Day tomorrow. The best ones not only reflect what the experience is like for the combatants, they also show us the inhumanity and the humanity of war (and maybe help us understand how to prevent them in the future). Besides, some are just plain good entertainment!

Grab one of these:

All Quiet on the Western Front (WWI)

Black Hawk Down (Operation Restore Hope: Somalia)

Drums Along the Mohawk (Revolutionary War)

Glory (Civil War)

Green Zone (Iraq)

The Great Escape (WWII)

The Last of the Mohicans (French and Indian War)

Pork Chop Hill (Korean War)

The Thin Red Line (WWII)

We Were Soldiers (Vietnam War)
