I aree I watched Sands first and Flags was ok but worth watching just to get the counter view. I beleive that they were both by Clint eastwood and meant to be watched in that order
Another good recent one is Enemy at the Gate
And for those interested in the Polish-Russian shenanigans then I reccomend "Katyn" - again watch in original language with subtitles
Oh another one I really like is Empire of the Sun with a young Christian Bale
