WWII movies similar to Tora! Tora! Tora!????

I have Midway, but I am looking for a movie that is similar in style, historical accuracy, etc. that covers the bombing of Hiroshima, etc.

Anyone recommend some good ones?


Any other great WWII epics you would recommend?

The Longest Day
A Bridge Too Far



Not exactly in the level of Tora! Tora! Tora! but still engaging anyway.

Ditto "The Longest Day," although it's about the D-Day invasion, not Hiroshima.

There's a film told from the Japanese point of view of Hiroshima called "Hiroshima.." something or other. Above and Beyond with Robert Taylor is about the Enola Gay and the Hiroshima bombing, it's classic Hollywood so probably not that accurate. Fat Man and Little Boy with Paul Newman is about the development of the two bombs. Other good classics:They Were Expendable, Bataan, Back to Bataan, The Story of G.I. Joe. The television series Combat! is pretty good. There's also The Battle of the Bulge(1965?), The Battle of Britain,and Patton and MacArthur. Good fiction-Bridge on the River Kwai, Where Eagles Dare, The Eagle Has Landed, Guns of Navarone, Operation Crossbow and The Dirty Dozen.

Thanks. I'm surprised there wasn't a more famous movie about the end of the war made.
