400 years of historical conflict on film

This is a collection of war/political conflict films set after the advent of gunpowder-based warfare. The idea is to have a list of films covering much of the last 400+ years of conflict from around the world. Grouped in rough chronological order and by the film's country of origin so one can easily browse and choose films for comparison. (see the notes)

I welcome any suggestions, particularly for conflicts or particular aspects of war under-represented in this list.
