Sam Peckinpah's only war film follows the story of a doomed German platoon facing annihilation at the hands of the Russians in 1943. Non-Nazi German soldier Steiner (James Coburn) resents the arrival of arrogant Prussian Stransky (Maximillian Schell) as his new commanding officer. Stransky is desperate to win an Iron Cross - a medal Steiner has already earned, but considers worthless - and so promotes the highly-recommended Steiner to sergeant. During a siege, Stransky hides in his bunker, terrified of battle, only to later file a report claiming that he himself led a victorious counter-attack. However, when Steiner disputes this Stransky takes measures to remove him.

It's 1914. Rudyard Kipling, the British Empire's greatest supporter, is at the peak of his literary fame. Kipling's son, Jack (Daniel Radcliffe), is determined to play his part in the imminent war with Germany, but finds himself rejected due to his extremely poor eyesight. When his father uses his influence to land Jack a commission in the Irish Guards, Kipling's wife, Caroline (Kim Cattrall), is bitterly upset, failing to see the glory in losing her only son to the war.

As Jack leaves for war, Kipling consoles himself with the thought that if his son should die, it will have been his finest hour. But how would the great writer justify the consequences of his actions to himself and his wife? And how would he live with the conflict between his two greatest passions: a love for his family and a devotion to King and Country?

General Douglas MacArthur, one of the most controversial public figures of our time, is the subject of this superb biographical drama which traces his outstanding career.

In 1942, with his position in the Philippines made hopeless by Japan's destruction of more than half the planes in his Far East Command, MacArthur leaves pledging 'I shall return!'

MacArthur does return, with riveting victories in the Pacific and the deft handling of the democratization of Japan; he is also armed with Presidential aspirations.

While serving in Korea, it is there that his colossal ego and insubordination results in dismissal by Truman in 1951.

MacArthur is a compelling story which explores facets of his ambitious character. It clearly demonstrates his brilliance as a strategist; his lust for publicity and flair for dramatics.

From internationally celebrated director Zhang Yimou comes a story of love and war.

The dangerous streets of Nanjing throw together a group of opposites - a flock of shell-shocked schoolchildren, a dozen seductive courtesans, and a renegade American posing as a priest to save his own skin, or so he thinks - all seeking safety behind a walled cathedral.

Trapped by marauding soldiers, over the next few days the prejudices and divides between them will fall away as they unite around a last-ditch plan to protect the children from impending catastrophe.

Seen through the eyes of a young boy, the 'fireworks' provided by the Blitz every night are as exciting as they are terrifying. His family do not see things in quite the same way and as the bombs continue to drop, their will to survive brings them closer together.

The nightly raids do not provide the only drama, however, as his sister falls for a Canadian airman and finding her life turned upside down, soon discovers how valuable the bonds of family can become.

Hope And Glory paints a picture of a world riven by conflict and yet united in resistance to the creeping tide of war that seems to be marching ever closer.

The Pacific is an epic 10-part miniseries that delivers a realistic portrait of WWII's Pacific Theatre as seen through the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge.

The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day.

The viewer will be immersed in combat through the intimate perspective of this diverse, relatable group of men pushed to the limit in battle both physically and psychologically against a relentless enemy unlike any encountered before.

Produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.
