War movies

For some people war movies are just type of action and adventure movies, but for others they can recall the painful memories. The war was different for infantry men, snipers, submarine crews or pilots, but usually they are equally bad for the civilians. Although sometimes the war movies can be awfully brutal, you have to remember that the war is not an adventure, it causes damages to people bodies and minds.
