I've seen Stalingrad. It was very real and meaningful. Especially the final scene, so very sad (I won't give it away). As for Enemy at the gates, I've been lead to believe that there was no sniper sent to hunt for Vasilli, and that was just a rumor, as there are no records of this being done.

IMO and knowledge the Russian's did charge with little weapons and there was a shortage of weapons but, later on they attained weapons and help from the Red Army. It is all true that people that retreated were shot by own men. That movie really shows most of what Soviet Union had experienced.

Pearl Harbor? I thought we were talking military history, not love story

Hollywood can't do a war film without a love story, even Midway had one

How about Platoon, or Full Metal Jacket.

Hmmmm, maybe they had a love/hate story line to them.

Oliver Stone was not very famous and Platoon was quite small-budget back then and Kubrick OTHO had his own production company.

But it's really irritating when you have movies such as Enemy at the Gates where the lovestory is almost inserted to the movie, like the only thing that would make the movie succesful is a romance.

that shortage of weapons is true.
also that they were shot by their polit officers, when retreating.
But the figure of Major König didnt exist.
