World War II Movies
World War II movies are definitely not in short supply. So many films have been made since the end of the war, starting with documentaries and dramas as early as the mid-1940s, to help educate people on what had just happened in the world. Educational films, historical accounts, narratives, and other movies have been in production for over 50 years, giving people a chance to learn all about the war from many perspectives. While there are films about the Japanese-U.S. conflict in the South Pacific and other events in World War II, most movies are about the Holocaust, Adolf Hitler, or the Nazis.
People remember the Holocaust because of its sheer scale. Many people don't even think of the attack on Pearl Harbor initially or the other things that were going on during this great war. They are so fixated on the severity of the Holocaust and how Hitler and the Nazis were able to pull off such a thing that they miss other important war events. Still, there are a great deal of movies that cover every subject and area of the war, from Nazi Germany to Hitler's private life to the lives of children who survived the Holocaust, and more.
World War II movies also have a military basis in some cases. Military and history buffs will like the documentaries that are created about the armies, the fighting, the battles, and the equipment used throughout the war. There are all kinds of specials and TV movies that have been aired through the years, as well as productions and narratives that can explore all of the different aspects of World War II and its horror. Some films aren't suitable for everyone because they can get quite graphic and create a lot of emotions in people.
There have been World War II movies made specifically for educational purposes, providing children and more sensitive adults with an option for learning about the Holocaust and the Second World War. So many different films have been made about the war and the Holocaust that there is bound to be something for just about everyone. This war resulted in the death of more than 11 million people at the hands of the Nazis, as well as the suicide or murder-suicide of thousands of Nazis who believed in death before dishonor. It is a popular subject among many groups who want to learn more about how something like this happened in the first place.
