Today were not going to write about tech writing tools or help documentation software. We want to say a few words about World War II.

This week, Russia celebrates the Victory Day. Victory Day, which is celebrated on 9th of May, not as well known in the USA as in Europe, especially in former republics of the Soviet Union, Germany, UK, Israel and some other countries.

Movies about World War II are a part of our memory and tribute to the generations that have seen WW2 with their own eyes. So we present ratings of the movies about this War, which are most popular in Russia:

  1. Schindler's List (Steven Spielberg, 1993)
  2. Life Is Beautiful (Roberto Benigni, 1997)
  3. The Pianist (Roman Polanski, 2002)
  4. Only Old Men Are Going to Battle (Leonid Bykov, 1973)
  5. The Dawns Here Are Quiet (Stanislav Rostotsky, 1972)
  6. Destiny of a Man (Sergei Bondarchuk, 1959)
  7. The Cranes Are Flying (Mikhail Kalatozov, 1957)
  8. Saving Private Ryan (Steven Spielberg, 1998)
  9. They Fought for Their Country (Sergei Bondarchuk, 1975)
  10. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (Mark Herman, 2008)

(this list is based on rating)
