BERLIN, 1941. Hitler is about to invade the Soviet Union, and five young Germans eagerly await their glorious future: patriotic Wehrmacht lieutenant Wilhelm heads to the Eastern Front with his bookish younger brother Friedhelm in pursuit of the "final victory;" bright-eyed Charlotte volunteers as a field nurse to serve the brave German men; and chanteuse Greta aspires to be the next Marlene Dietrich. Only resourceful tailor Viktor, a jew, begins to sense the impending horrors… Featuring terrifyingly realistic battles staged "with SAVING PRIVATE RYAN-like intensity and precision" (The New York Times), GENERATION WAR examines the atrocities of the Third Reich on both grand and personal levels, depicting the nationalist fervor, human betrayals, and eventual crumbling ideology of the German people through the story of five diverging lives. Hailed as "a turning point" in the conversation surrounding Germany's legacy of guilt (Der Spiegel), GENERATION WAR is a groundbreaking epic miniseries that portrays WWII from a never-before-seen perspective.

WONDERFUL....but wanted MORE!
cripes sake they should have drawn this out more! its WAAAY too good to be just one season! I love the performances and the german army depicted here is not watered dow this appears to be pretty much a fair and balanced accounting.
Not only is the acting superb, the story is engaging and thought-provoking. I was totally captivated the entire time and would recommend this to anyone!
very good, could have made it longer
