To End All Wars (2001)

To End All Wars is a 2001 World War II film based on a true story and starring Robert Carlyle and Kiefer Sutherland as Allied P.O.W.'s who are forced by the Japanese Army to build the infamous Burma Railway while enduring harsh treatment at the hands of their captors.

The following weapons were used in the film To End All Wars:

Allied Weapons

Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III*

The men of the Allergy and Sutherland Highlanders march with the Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III* in the film's beginning. Technically, the No.1 MkIII had been replaced by the improved No.4 Mk.1 rifle by WWII, but the No.1 MkIII was still being produced and issued to units, so its appearance is accurate.

The main weapon of Japanese soldiers and guards in the film is the Arisaka Type 38.

Interestingly, the rear sight is graduated all the way up to 2400 meters yet has been turned down to its peep configuration, which would actually slightly obscure the front sight. If the peep sight is down, the ladder should be at its lowest point.

Type 26 Revolver

Sgt. Ito (Sakae Kimura), one of the guards, and Lt. Colonel Nagatomo (Shû Nakajima) use a Imperial Japanese Type 26 Revolver as their sidearm rather then the more common Nambu Type 14. The Type 26 Revolver was the first modern handgun issued to the Japanese Imperial forces and was the sidearm issued just before Hirohito's ascension to the throne.
