After seeing Allied last night it got me to thinking about how much I have always been into World War II. Although when I decided to put this list together I have now realised that I have not actually seen as many of the films based on this War as I actually expected. I therefore picked my seven favourites that I have seen (so far). Please let me know which ones are your favourites and which ones I should really watch!
I have tried to have quite varied choices!

I think that would be a very strange link :s
Supermodel Helena Christensen has taken aim at New York newspaper editors for implying she is romantically involved with soon-to-be-divorced actor Sean Penn, insisting they are just friends.
Penn separated from his actress wife Robin Wright Penn at the end of April, just months after they reunited following a previous split.
Days later, the New York Post’s Page Six columnists claimed Christensen had “befriended” Penn – and she’s furious at the insinuation that she was the ‘other woman’ in his marriage.
The Danish beauty has also blasted the gossips for previously linking her to Josh Hartnett and the late Heath Ledger.
In an email to the publication, Christensen fumes: “I’m quite honestly getting seriously fed up with being falsely connected with several men on Page Six: Josh Hartnett, Heath Ledger, and now it is insinuated (we all know what ‘befriended’ means on these pages!) that Sean Penn is another.
“There has never been any intimacy between myself and any of these men, and I want this cleared once and for all.
“I have known Sean since I was in my early 20s and have met his wife several times. He has always been a friend and we have several friends in common. I have always respected his wife immensely and regard her as one of my favourite actresses.
“Please stop always making up these ridiculous insinuations about myself and all these men… It was very hurtful to myself and Heath when we were wrongly declared a couple, and I’m sick and tired of the Josh Hartnett connection as well. These people were or are close friends of mine, as is Sean Penn.”
Oscar-winning Milk star Penn originally filed for divorce back in 2007.
