This year marks the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese People's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression and the World Anti-fascist War.

Here we list eight Chinese classic war films which encapsulate the bravery and wisdom of the Chinese who fought courageously on the frontline and even sacrificed their lives to earn the peace we have today.


1 Landmine warfare (1962)

Set against the backdrop of the hardest years in the anti-Japanese war, the 1962 film tells a story of how the militia and villagers in Zhaojiazhuang defend themselves by laying out landmines to ambush the enemy. Characters in the film are vividly presented as brave, wise and patriotic heroes who will never surrender, even under the most extreme circumstance.

Apart being one of the three most well -received war films at that time (the other two were Tunnel Warfare and Fighting North and South), the film heralds a new narrative technique to combine storytelling and military education.
