Interesting question. I'll have to think on it a bit. The first move that comes to mind is Battle Cry.
Chernobyl was one of the best mini series ever made.TURN is an incredible series. It had some weird moments (like the first battle scene we see), but the storyline behind Abraham was great.
John Adams isn't a war series, but it's probably one of the best mini-series I've ever watched. It's up there with Chernobyl.
Helmet for my Pillow by Lackey was a good read as well.I know I've shared this, but he deserves remembering. Band of Brothers Pacific was based in part on With the Old Breed by Eugene Sledge, of Mobile. He was the scrawny mortar guy in the show. By most accounts, his is the best enlisted account of WWII, because you'd get court-martialed if you kept notes. He wrote in his Bible. His book, his true account, is much better than watching it, although the bunker TV scene is pretty good.
