Nope - Korea - Gregory Peck 1959 --- a true classic.

EDIT: gladiatt - Ahh I see I was simply replying to the OP...not to your inquiry

Guys, i am asking to those with a long memory.
YYYYears ago, when i was a kid, i saw a film about a ground battle in pacific.
In my memorie it really was great. But i can't find wich one it is: it is not "Leatherneck" with John Wayne, and it is not the one about Okinawa with Richard Widmark; it's not Merryl Marauder with Eroll Flynn either.

I remenber there was a scene where a young GI in a outpost let his wounded buddy to search for help, and run like a mad in the jungle in the night, crossing a jap patrol.
Does it raise something in somebody's memory ???

I love Sink the Bismark (1960) and The Sand Pebbles (1966) but they were made outside the requested time window.  I would think Sands of Iwo Jima (1949) would be my favorite from that time period.

edit: 12 O'Clock High (1949) would also be high on my list.

In the "war movie that was not a war movie" we can add among the best films The Caine Mutiny.

Great flick, but the Padishah Emporer's, er . . . Jose Ferrar's character deserved a beat down at the end of the movie.

Re: Casablanca. Love it when Bogie starts talking about the new German 77mm guns. What's 11mm between friends?

When I went through Sub School that movie was part of the official leadership curriculum. They showed a long scene, then did discussion, Q&A, then showed another, etc. Watch it from that perspective and it's a whole different movie.

The team-building techniques Peck's character used were very similar to those in "Soul of a New Machine", the Pulitzer-winning book about the process of designing a new mini-computer. "Signing up", "purgatory", "interim rewards"and other techniques from Twelve Oclock are also used in civilian life.

Old school war movies for that time period (30's-50's)? There are quite a few I think.
Paths of Glory
Run Silent, Run Deep
Here to Eternity
They Were Expandable
The Story of G.I.Joe (The Ernie Pyle Story)
In Which We Serve
Hells Angels
All Quiet on the Western Front

That's just scratching the surface...

Paths of Glory, good movie.. I didn't think of that myself, but now that you mention it, seems obvious. Gone with the wind was '39....
Sands of Iwo Jima has to be #1, action in the North Atlantic i always likes and Turner had it on 2 weeks ago. Back to Bataan.. 30 Seconds over Tokyo was '44 so that will fit..
