Where are you guys finding Generation War? It's not on SA Netflix - so maybe I need to try a different library, or get on the high seas.

The Dam Busters
Movie about the bouncing bomb used to destroy a few dams during WW II.
Still waiting for the Peter Jackson remake! Stalled since 2008 while they decide what to call Guy Gibson's dog.

Fun Fact: Richard Todd who played Guy Gibson in the movie was a paratroop officer in World War 2 took part in the battle for Pegasus Bridge on D-Day. in The Longest Day, Todd played Major John Howard, the leader of the glider assault on Pegasus Bridge.
