No, but it's on the agenda--at least using historical skirmishes as inspiration to test out 1:1 SF rules.

Not actually in a game, but for some of my SF novels, yes.

A friend of mine ran an Orkanowa scenario one time.

I used the Chosin Reservoir as the genesis for a 40K campaign once. Replaced the Chinese with Orks and used Imperial Guard for the US Army and Space Marines for the USMC.

I ran a BattleTech game based on gettysburg. We also did a bridge too far.

seems like bridge too far would be an awesome scenario to do!
