Great WWII suggestions from Twitter

On Twitter @WWIIToday posted a link to Time Out London's "50 Best WWII Films" only to see a big response from followers mentioning a host of WWII films they felt deserved more recognition, or higher ranking. Follower Petrov Dempski @petrovdempski kindly compiled the list below. What do you think? You can follow the conversation @WWIIToday, search Twitter #WWIIflix or just note them here.
