The Army Times’ Top 10 American War Movies

Don’t ask me how I found this list. Browsing the internet, of course, but what was I looking for? Whatever. I found it on Army Times and would like to share it with you. I am sure that more than one of my readers will be equally puzzled by some of their choices.

Lets go:

10.  A Bridge Too Far (1977) (see my post)

9. The Dirty Dozen (1967)

8. The Great Escape (1963) (see my post)

7. Top Gun (1986)

6. Letters from Iwo Jima (2006)

5. The Caine Mutiny (1954)

4. Glory (1989)

3. Black Hawk Down (2001)

2. Patton (1970)

1. Full Metal Jacket (1987)

If you want to know their reasons you will have to read their article. While I certainly agree with a few of them I have absolutely no clue how Top Gun got on this list. What the heck? And where is Saving Private Ryan (see my post) and Platoon? While they were at it they could have put  Pearl Harbor on No. 1.

What are your thoughts on the list? All worthy candidates?
