  1. There’s quite a few there that look interesting and I haven’t seen Mark. Thanks for the suggestions. I would also recommend:
    Peterloo, The Charge of the Light Brigade, and Waterloo for the social background that they give rather than the main battle scenes.
    Also The Madness of King George and The Favourite for interesting insights to two monarchs.
