Argentinian Carolina has an extensive movie background in the cinematic universe. She is our resident TV analyst and a seasoned expert in global streaming platforms. She showcases her comprehensive knowledge through her love for Netflix 'Originals', Frozen, The Good Place, and The Dragon Prince.

War has been part of humankind, sadly, from the beginning. Some wars have affected the whole world, while others take place in faraway places.

Movies have always been portraying war in all its shapes. War movies are pierced by different genres such as military, romance, thriller, and sometimes fiction and horror.

But one thing always prevails, the pain and suffering of the human soul.

Here, I have chosen 50 of the best war movies you can find on Netflix that show different battles through history. Some are from the purely military point of view, others from the civilian one, some are true events with fictionalized situations.

Whether you like the genre or you’re interested in knowing more about pivotal events of history, these movies will be for you.

How to watch these movies

Although these movies are on Netflix, they aren’t available in all countries. Next to each film, I’ve listed what countries they’re available in.

You’ll be able to access ALL these films, no matter what country they’re available in, by using a VPN app.

There are lots of VPN apps to choose from but my recommendation due to its features is ExpressVPN.

It’s the most complete VPN on the market that offers the fastest connection speeds, a user-friendly interface, and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

If you want to shop around, you can also try NordVPN and Surfshark. Both of them have great features for a similar fee. Which you pick, is up to you.
