Writing my review of A Time to Love and a Time to Die got me thinking about my favourite war films the other day. I’m not generally a big fan of the genre, but at the same time some of my favourites can be classed as war films. So, alongside the release of Emperor in UK cinemas (not a grand event, I know), I thought I’d theme the latest poll around the genre. It’s a bit of a mixed bag, with a couple of ‘Nam films nestling alongside WWII offerings and films that look at the Holocaust rather than the front lines.
