Battle Ground Ending!
Can't make my mind up...
ice cold in alex! all the time
Seconded, in fact arguably one of the best movie scenes ever.
A Town Like Alice
Yep, takes some beating. I also like the end of Hamburger Hill. I like the way that there's no celebration or speeches, just some lads looking back the way they came.
Cross of Iron.
Agreed. Not long before the end, there is the bit where they are fighting forward up the hill to inspiring music, only to be cut down by their own heli's.
I also like the odd angry shot where the two of them end up having a beer at a bar (in Sydney?) which has been completely untouched by the war. For some reason that always seems to sum up 90% of the worlds conflicts.

gotta be the Dambusters for me. There's something uniquely British in the understated way it finishes as in job done carry on.
My favourite war film ending is where they're attacking a machine gun post, they blow it up, and that's the end. It's an old film, can't remember the name.
Here you go. I'll show this to my kids if they ever want to be stupid enough to join the infantry... like me
Yes, that's it! Thanks.
