Ken Burns: The War is excellent.

I agree.

Flags of our Fathers (2006) has parts of the film that depict life on the home front of World War II, mixed in with the frontline stuff. Not an entire movie of home life during the war, but I thought that Clint Eastwood captured the feel of how the war was affecting people at home rather well.

Also, The Pacific (2010) is an HBO TV miniseries not a movie, but it too depicts a split-version of life at home and life on the front like Flags of our Fathers (2006) does. But again it depicts it rather well, and it was the home front stuff that fascinated me.

On a side note and a bit off-topic, because you asked about World War II movies, All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) is set in World War I, but also does a fantastic job depicting what life was like at home away from the front and what happens when you put active duty soldiers on leave from the front in a civilian setting; they're like a fish out of water. I hope this helps!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
