-Life and the Death of The Bismarck
Great German battleship that was supposed to be the biggest and best that the Germans could offered in the naval war against the British.
-The Sinking of the U.S.S Indianapolis and its aftermath (horribly depressing though)
This was the ship that delivered Little Boy (the first atomic bomb) to the airfield in the Pacific Ocean, before it was dropped on Japan. After that, the Indianapolis was sunk by a Japanese submarine, and its crew were not rescued for five days (due to the U.S Navy messing up), a lot of the crew were eaten by sharks.

It's one of the great adventures of the second world war and would make a really good film. There are several very good texts out there which could form the basis for the film but the one I always reach for is Hunt and Kill: U-505 and the U-Boat War in the Pacific edited by Theodore Savas.

Frankly, I find the synopsis confusing.

Seriously, the Boer Wars have never really been covered in film that I know of, and while they did a TV movie, I'd love to see a big budget flick about the Falklands.
