Red Storm Rising would be amazing if done in a Band of Brothers type mini-series but you'd have to have the right director to do it. Debt of Honor and Exective Orders would be a great set of movies as well.

Conf. Gen. Johnson Hagood at Petersburg.  His flag is captured.  Hagood rides up to he Yankee and demands it back. When the Union soldier refuses, Hagood shoots him, seizes the flag and leads his men back to their lines. The Yankees are too stunned to shoot.

Something about Genghis Khan.

We have King Arthur we have Braveheart we have Alexander we have Troy and on and on. Genghis Khan was a motherfucker's motherfucker in every sense. Nobody else even came close. Lets get an American film director with a big budget and no desire to keep it real with ancient languages and subtitled bullshit. Rape, murder, arson, rape and a mountain of corpses. Go.

Also, Day by Day Armageddon.

There was a time in the 70's and 80's where you could make his books (at least the ideas) into movies, there's no way it would happen now. Too bad most of his stuff was published in the 90's/00's.

A mini series of Swiss Family Robinson. Not the Disney shit. Exactly how the book has it.

The Wheel of time by Robert Jordan.   Done HBO series style like game of thrones.  There is enough material for at least a dozen seasons.

There was a book about a decade ago called "Meaning of Night", it would make an incredible mini series.

But only if it's really well done.

Battlefield Earth by the crazy L. Ron Hubbard but done correctly.

Would be a trilogy as the book has three distinct parts to it.
