The supposed "GREATEST ANIT-WAR FILM" ever is not even on the list and that's Path's of Glory.

Das Boot is an anti-war film? It's an anti- Lose-a-war film. The U-boat crews would have been proud and happy if their side had won.

Youre right that in a war film if the side wins, then it wouldnt be different from the majority of most war films. I believe that the film is anti war because it shows war in a negative light, and there efforts in the end turn out to be nothing.

  I'd say Platoon or Peckinpah's Cross of Iron over the ones listed.

Agreed. As I've said before, all great war films are anti-war films.

I have edited it slightly, taking out The Burmese Harp, and Fires on the Plain.

Paths of Glory is one of Kubrick's greatest achievements.

Where is La Grande Illusion? These are too few.
And of course Cross Of Iron.
