Dien Bien Phu was made – and under that name – by Pierre Shoendoeffer who was actually present during the battle.

The Only War We've Got…if only for the marvellous comic potential of the 'combat' scene in the big PX at Cholon.

These are all pretty weak. I think something like the battle of Nam Dong or even a SOG mission in Laos would be way more interesting and revealing, as well as heart stopping. Hue could be good if done right. Really wasn't too much ground fighting at Khe Sahn other than at Lang Vei and the 881 hills. The most ground fighting took place during Op Pegasus when the Army fought it's way to relieve KS.
When you just focus on the big battles you lose the perspective of the actual war.
