Bit, my FIL was a Jolly Green in Vietnam.. Bat 21 and Rescue Dawn get to be about as close to showing what he did as you can get.

Billy Budd with William Shatner?

Speaking of Shatner, he was in a made for TV film called Sole Survivor,
about a crashed B-24… it was actually pretty good.

Apocalypse Now
Platoon
The Patriot
Last of the Mohicans (not really a war movie but was during a conflict)
Saving Private Ryan
Full Metal Jacket

And I agree about Band of Brothers. Best series ever.

In addition to all of these I'd also add Hurt Locker to this list. That was a great modern war movie.

Shatner to my knowledge was not in the 1962 release of Billy Budd in which Robert Ryan played the cruel officer. If he was in it then he was in a very small role.

Every once in a while, a director gets it right. I can relate to either film. I was there myself. Although as a sniper, my experience was a bit different than most.
