Great story and, well, Rachel Weisz.

I liked Enemy at the Gate, in spite of my disdain for Ed Harris and the fact that
the film is a bit over-the-top… although not anymore embellished as The Big Red One.

Forgot about the 1957 WWI movie Paths of Glory directed by Stanley Kubrick and stars Kirk Douglas as French Colonel Dax. I can't imagine fighting trench warfare but this scene gives you an idea...

Tora, Tora, Tora and Midway come to mind. I liked In Harms Way despite it being a bit embellished.

Worst war movie ever wasn't really a war movie at all: Pearl Harbor. I felt dirty about giving those bastards even a penny of my money for that steaming pile of crap.

Guilty pleasure of mine... Glory. Did it take some creative licensing? Absolutely. But I loved every minute of it.

Not certain if a HBO Series would count, but Band of Brothers was the best 10-12 weeks of tv ever.

Patton
Gettysburg
Gods and Generals
