Wow - unusual and clever to add 'Lord of the rings.'

I don't want to detract from the thread or the absolute classic films that you and TH have suggested. Can I thoroughly recommend two BBC box sets 'The Great War' and 'The world at War.'

Good choices, Sir Sid, I like the way you think. lol! lol! lol! 
 
I hadn't thought of documentaries, Jim, but I have a couple of those I really like, The BBC History of WWII and The History Channel Ultimate Collections, WWII.
 
as far as movies, I would say:
 
The Longest Day
Saving Private Ryan (commonly referred to as: Saving Ryan's Privates)
A Bridge Too Far
Battle of Britain

(Technically not a movie, but my favorite of all time):
Band of Brothers
