Despite the heavy subject matter, war movies are a wildly entertaining genre, allowing us to recount history's tales of heroes and monsters. The best war movies streaming on Hulu are gripping, intelligent, and sometimes even triumphant.  

Have you ever imagined what it would have been like if Germany had won World War II? Thanks to Alan Turing and England's cracking of Enigma, the secret Nazi code in which Germany communicated all their attack plans, we'll never have to know. More about Alan Turing, the father of computers, and Enigma can be discovered in The Man Who Cracked the Nazi Code. If you're a World War II junkie and need to stock up on more WWII facts, the documentary How Hitler Lost the War is definitely for you. The interviews with Ex-Nazis are fascinating - each interviewee attempts to explain their dedication, or great detest for, Hitler. There's also rare footage of German soldiers in Russia, and Hitler relaxing with friends at Eagle's Nest included in the film.
