just saw DARKEST HOUR with Gary Oldham as Churchill.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darkest_Hour_(film)

This movie showed how perilously close Britain came to defeat ...one HMG WAR-CABINET political decision away!!!! Once it became obvious the people were willing to fight on to the end , the political opposition to Churchill evaporated.

This movie also highlights how little American president Roosevelt could do to help Churchill , due to congressional laws. This also hints at why the Franch collapsed so quickly and possibly how that could have been avoided.

My vote goes to the Australian movie "Breaker Morant.' It deals with issues related to the British-led insurgency against Boer insurgents in South Africa around the turn of the 19th century.
