You receive funding comparable to Gods&Generals and complete artistic freedom. What warmovie would you make? Personally I'd do the Crimean war. Handsome British men with outrageous moustaches taking on dastardly Turks and creepy Russians in magnificent frozen landscapes. The siege of Sebastopol, a love triangle featuring Florence Nightingale, the Alma and the battle of Balaclava. Finally let's not forget the French General Canrobert, we need a comic relief character after all. At the climax of the movie, the charge of the light brigade, Canrobert get's his famous line:"C'est magnifique, mais ce nes pas la guerre" after which he redeems himself by saving the light brigade with his Chasseurs D'afrique.
