On September 1, 1939, German troops invaded Poland and ignited the fire of one of the deadliest and darkest chapters of humanity's history: World War II, a conflict of epic scale killing as many civilians as the millions of young men who served, the conflict reached unprecedented lows of barbarity but revealed the bravery of those who fought for a just cause. A conflict that still inspired countless books, stories and movies and that still fascinates us today...

... and it all started 80 Years ago. Celebrating that sad anniversary and remembering the 50 million people who died during the conflict, here are the WW2 movies rated at least 8.0 on IMDb, which one is your favorite?

FYC:

You should have a minimum number of ratings to avoid this:

I think some really good movies like Dunkirk should have a place on this list even if they are under 8.0. 

To be honest a movie with 3000 votes is not a serious contender for movies like Schindler's list.

To be fair, The Sorrow and the Pity was a last minute addition because I didn't want to have 29 entries but 30. 

That said, the film is one of the all-time greatest documentaries, it's (no pun intended) a pity that it's not as well known as Woodstock or Michael Moore's film, it's a four-hour series of interviews intercut with historical footage and that never feels too long.

And the film met with critical acclaim, making both Ebert and Siskel's Top 10 films.

As for Dunkirk, seriously, I didn't expect to have so many movies just by using the 8.0 rating, I guess we have 95% of all the classic WWII films here.
