Top 10: Military Operations Hollywood Got Right

Hollywood certainly has a long history of glamorizing or fabricating military history, but WatchMojo has put together a list of the 10 most accurate military operations Hollywood has depicted.  Though WM doesn’t say so in their piece, I think they’re referring to the operational parts of these films (as there are parts outside of the ops in this films that are fictionalized).  It’s a fantastic idea for a list, and I was extremely interested to see what did and didn’t make the accuracy cut.  I have a tremendous respect for the men and women who put on a uniform and serve those who don’t, and I think their stories should be portrayed with as much attention to detail as any stories told.  In thanking them for their service, it’s the very least (the VERY least we can do).  One of the most memorable theater-going experiences of my life was seeing Saving Private Ryan at a small theater in WV, and scattered throughout the crowd were elderly men in full uniform.  Their presence there gave what we saw onscreen so much more weight, and I’ll never forget their faces afterward.Black Hawk Down
