Command is a lonely place
As a retired army officer and an adjunct history professor I thought it was important to review what I consider the best war movies depicting the challenges of leadership and the command of men.       This is the best movie depicting the “lonely place” command can be, especially when you do not believe in the mission!  “Saving Private Ryan” is the greatest Hollywood movie showing the reality of infantry combat ever made.  The first 30 minutes …

This is by far my favorite film of all time. I could literally watch it weekly the rest of my life and never get tired of it. It's just filmmaking done perfectly. For anyone that has not seen this film, I highly suggest giving it a watch!

Later, Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) and his men are given an assignment to locate Private James Ryan (Matt Damon) and remove him from …
