By the time the Gulf War was in full swing, and for the first time in history, Americans were able to follow the events of war on television in real time, often from behind enemy lines. Maybe this is why there are many fewer films about this conflict than any other featured in our Greatest Military Movies Series. Or perhaps it’s because there was so little time between the end of the Persian Gulf War and the beginning of the War on Terror that fewer films were made before moving on to post-9/11 war movies. Regardless of the reason, there are still some very good movies about the Gulf War out there for your viewing pleasure, many available to stream online. Here is our top ten Gulf War movies list.
