Three older movies:


Hunde, wollt ihr ewig Leben/Stalingrad: Dogs do you want to live forever (1959) - German movie, Stalingrad.

Oni srazhalis' za Rodinu/They Fought for their Country/the Motherland (1975) - Soviet era but worth a watch.

Battleground (1949) - Parachute Infantry, 101st Airborne.

There are two movies - one filmed 1955 and another version from 1985. Most prefer the 1955 one but the one from 1985 is sometimes given cred for its camerawork, example:

In 2017 there will be a thrid version, but this one I belive will draw on Sotaromaani ("War Novel"), Linnas uncensored version of Unknown Soldier.

The Longest Day in color. Only available on VHS, not on DVD (as far as I know). If someone knows where I can find it on DVD please tell me. In the middle 90's, a bunch of old vintage WWII movies where colorized, including Battleground, a sub movie, and this one. I think it was the 50th year anniversary of the end of WWII or something. Hard to find. Being in color makes them seem like entirely new movies. Cool stuff.

Anthropiod (2016) about the operation to kill leading SS man Reinhard Heydrich. Good film.
