What does it take to make a good war movie?

There are obvious elements of course like factual accuracy, realism, and attention to period detail. But a film depicting conflict should also convey the myriad of emotions soldiers experience in the heat of battle, and do so without over-dramatizing the situation. Couple that with the technical quality demanded of any film that sets out to portray hostility and bloodshed, and the final result should be a film that does credit to the event and the people who were there. 

Browse the following gallery for a selection of war movies that are rife with truth or tell a story based on real lives and historical record.
