In Kampta, Guido hides his son from German troops and gives him secretly food. He tells his son that if they win the game they will give the tank he wants to get on his birthday as a reward. You will both laugh and cry while watching this movie.

My second suggestions is “The Pianist”. This movie is from 2002 and the plot of the movie is :
Wladyslaw Szpilman is a successful Polish pianist. II. In World War II, the Germans return to the nightmare when they invade Poland. If he is Jewish, he gets rid of going to luck-gathering camps and starts living on the outskirts of Warsaw. Later Wilm Hosenfeld survives with the help of a German officer named. Pianist which has won the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival in 2002 and was nominated for the Oscar for the best film.

The third movie which has 8.3 points according to IMDB list, “Der Untergang (Downfall) ” made in 2004:
The film begins with a statement by Adolf Hitler's secretary, Traudi Junge, in the 2000s. Adolf Hitler, the fugitive of Nazi Germany, is with his generals in the refuge of Berlin in the final days of his life. Meanwhile, the Red Army's siege of Berlin is at its final pace.

Another suggestion is that the film was taken more recently “Inglourious Bastards” (2009) :
On the corner of Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine is organizing a group of Jewish soldiers to retaliate against the enemy. Raine's group, known by his enemies as the "Bastards", has undertaken a mission to harm those leading to Nazi Germany.

Lucky loves to read and learn very much thanks to Max's aspiring refugee family and his family. For Max and brave Liesel, the only way to get rid of all the evils in the world around them is the world of imagination that both books and words offer. But Jew Max, who is hiding in the basement, is always on the thorn.

Pearl Harbor (2001) This production, which looks at the war by American, is one of the films that describe the second world war well. In brief the plot is:
During the Second World War, Americans helped armies and soldiers to Europe. But President Franklin D. Roosevelt is not very pleased with this situation. He believed that weapons and military aid should be increased and that America should now take its place in this war. While the war was shrouded in Europe and Asia, America was making moves that would change the course of warfare from a distance of thousands of miles. When the peace talks were held to mean that the Japanese were stopping, the Japanese were preparing a plan that would affect the United States deeply. Finally, they put these plans into action on December 7, 1941.

The last suggestion is “Fury” which is made in 2014. The plot is :
It passed in April 1945 at the end of World War II. As the Allies reduced the final bumps on the European scene, Wardaddy, a solidified sergeant for the war, commanded a Sherman tank.
