A recent thread reminded me of a great way to get people interested in/excited about wargames. Get them to watch a war film/TV show that they enjoy (or remind them of one they've enjoyed in the past), then play the game that features exactly the action depicted!

I'm certain that this type of thread would have been done in the past. I'm doing it again, without looking at ones that have gone before. Apologies to those who may think I'm repeating - it bears review once in a while!

Feel free to add to the list, but please ensure that the game clearly depicts the same action (and where possible, the same unit or units involved) shown in the movie.

Special credit should go to

Watch "The Pacific" HBO Miniseries, Part 1: "Guadalcanal/Leckie", then play Combat Commander: Pacific scenario C "Ichi Attacks!".

The (somewhat fictionalized) end scene is exactly the battle depicted in the scenario.

Watch "Zulu" (1964) directed by Cy Enfield and/or "Zulu Dawn" by Douglas Hickox, then play Victoria Cross II.

The Rourke's Drift scenario depicts the events of "Zulu", the Isandlwana scenario is covered by "Zulu Dawn".

Colour Sergeant Bourne, as depicted by Nigel Green in "Zulu" is one of the most kick-ass sergeants in movie history.

Sadly, the real CSM Bourne was only 24 years-old at 5'6" at the time of the battle, and hardly the towering 40 year-old six-footer-plus of Green's frame.

Watch the beach landing scene of "Saving Private Ryan" (1998), then play D-Day at Omaha Beach

Specifically the area around Dog Green and Charlie sectors in the game (the bottom right of the map as it faces you) - the movie sub-titles the landing area as "Dog Green" but C Company, 2nd Rangers actually landed at Charlie sector.

Sadly, I am aware of no boardgame which depicts any of the 54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry's actions at the Battle of Fort Wagner, Battle of Olustee, Battle of Honey Hill or the Battle of Boykin's Mill, but maybe there is one out there.

Watch "Combat!" the TV series, then play Sniper! (first edition) or Soldiers: Man-to-Man Combat in World War II

The look and feel of "Sniper" and, to a lesser extent, "Soldiers", reminds me of the intensely "one-on-one" feel of many of the episodes of "Combat!"

Certainly some of the graphic design of Combat Commander: Europe seems also influenced by the opening titles of "Combat!".
