Movies:

1. Patton
2. The Longest Day
3. How the West Was Won (the Civil War sequence with Harry Morgan as Ulysses S. Grant).

Books:

1. The Reason Why by Cecil Woodham-Smith.
2. Goodbye to All That by Robt. Graves.
3. Storm of Steel by - um, that German guy. Junger.

By the way there's a pretty good history reading list at HistoryAccess.com; "History Reading Suggestions."

Jakester, some other ww1 books you might find interesting; The Great War and Modern Memory by Paul Fussell, In Flanders Fields by Leon Wolff, and The Complete Memoirs Of George Sherston by Siegfried Sassoon to name a few.
