Films  
  War Game is an excellent animation based on the leters and diaries of a group of youngsters who went to war. I've found it to be extremely well liked by pupils at KS3 and by GCSE groups. As it's quite a short film it can be shown in a lesson with a series of supporting activities built around it. For example, with GCSE students I've used it as part of work on propaganda during the war, using the sections in which people are encouraged to join up and contrasting this with later sections in which the mood of the charectors is rather different.
  All quiet on the Western Front is simply fantastic. As a film resource to use in the classroom it takes some beating as it allows visualisation of all manner of aspects of the war and is easy to incorporate into activities that look at interpretations of warfare.
