    Sven Hassel's first novel Wheels of terror was made into a movie though it was renamed misfit brigade in some countries, havent seen it myself but my cousin has and he reckoned it was ok but not as good as the book.

    Conspiracy, with Kenneth Branagh & Stanley Tucci

    We've mentioned this before, but it bears repeating.

    More accurately, a film from the Nazi perspective than German, but valid nonetheless.

    No action, but excellent acting and a fine script that brings home the horror of the Final Solution.

    - I cannot believe that nobody here mentioned the movie named "The Bridge" or "Die Brucke". I saw only one time this black and white movie back in Romania in late 1970s. It is a very good movie [102 min] from late 1950s made by West Germany. During the last days of WW2 some young German guys have the mission to keep a bridge not to be captured by the enemy [US Army]. Their sacrifice is in vain. For more info about this interesting sad movie please enter here at http://www.ihffilm.com/512-es.html Anyone who remembers now this movie????? Orita 12/13/05

    - Another WW2 movie which fits to this topic is "A Time to Love and a Time to Die". This is a movie [132 min] from 1958 based on an excellent book written by the German author Erich Maria Remarque [1898-1970]. The author of the book [Erich Maria Remarque] plays himself in this WW2 movie as "Professor Pohlmann". It's a very good realistic movie but I hate the end which is very sad. For more info about this movie see here at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052296/ Orita 12/13/05

    - There is also this 1985 movie [I have it on DVD] named "Hitler's S.S.: Portrait in Evil". It's the story of 2 brothers and their family starting with early 1930s in Germany until the end of WW2 in 1945. For more info about this movie read here at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089279/ Orita 12/14/05

    "Sophie Scholl: The Final Days" is out at cinemas now I think. I saw a preview of this film on the BBC and it looks pretty good

    For anyone who doesn't know who Sophie Scholl is, she was involved in a anti-Nazi group in Munich called "The White Rose" mid-late in the war who tried to convince other German students that Hitler was ruining their country

    lets just say that the Munich authorities didn't take very kindly to them

    - Again for this topic there is a 1982 long movie named "Inside the Third Reich". The movie is based on the book with the same title, book written by Albert Speer. The movie is about the life of Albert Speer [1905-1981] who was Hitler's chief architect and the minister of armaments in Hitler's cabinet. Albert Speer was released from prison in 1966, he had been sentenced at Nurnberg in 1946. It's a very good movie about WW2 and Germany before and after 1939. To read more about this movie see here at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084140/ Orita 12/14/05

    Default German war movies

    Hi Folks,

    some ads to this theme. I agree with Orita about "the bridge" These young guys should hold the bridge that was just before their doorstep. These boys died in sight of their homes. At the end a demolition team arrived to blow up the bridge that these boys had just defended...
    Other german movies" Haie und kleine Fische" "Sharks and small fish" from the same author who wrote "the Boot". I dont know if this movie exsist in english.
    Hans-Helmuth Kirst: "Fabrik der Offiziere" "factory of officers" I dont know if a movie exist in english.
    "The last days", a black an white version of the down fall.

    One small note to the downfall. A last the secretary speaks about could she had known all this. She mentiond yes as she has seen that Sophie Scholl was born on the same year as herself
    If you think you are beaten you are.
