It’s almost impossible to pick a favourite war film since so many of them are fantastic. To narrow it down for the occasion of Remembrance Day, I stuck to First World War films and came up with the 1979 version of All Quiet on the Western Front. The last time I remember watching it was on a long, quiet Sunday like today, sitting around my dad’s place in Oxfordshire. I abandoned whatever my plans had been to see the film through, pausing every half an hour or so for another cup of coffee or a snack. It was a good day.

War films have a long and varied history, stretching back to the end of the First World War itself.
Monday 11th November 2013 marks the 95th anniversary of the Armistice that ended the conflict. It’s impact was so profound that, for a while, it was believed that violence on such a scale could never occur again.
