Interesting war movies, tho not all are near the top of my (or anybody's?) list:

Seige of Firebase Gloria (Vietnam, with R. Lee Ermey)
The Outlaw Josey Wales (Clint Eastwood, post-Civil War)
Stalag 17 (William Holden, WW2 POWs in Germany)
Caine Mutiny (Bogart as off-his-rocker WW2 destroyer captain)
Mr. Roberts (Henry Fonda as frustrated cargo ship quartermaster)
Last of the Mohicans (Daniel Day Lewis, Russell Means, F&I War)
Dances with Wolves (Costner "goes Indian")
Twelve O'Clock High (Gregory Peck in a WW2 B-something bomber, 17 or 24, I've not seen the flick)
Dawn Patrol (WW1)
Wings (WW1 aerial; received first-ever best picture Oscar, 1927)

I'm sure more lurk just below our active memories. They'll all come to the surface in their own time.
