Generation War

Five young German friends find their lives torn apart when Adolf Hitler plunges Europe into war in this epic miniseries from director Philipp Kadelbach (Hindenburg). Called to serve his country when fighting erupts on the eastern front, decorated officer Willhelm (Volker Bruch) races off to the battlefield alongside his nervous younger sibling Friedhelm (Tom Schilling). Meanwhile, hopeful that her true love Wilhelm will soon return to her, optimistic nurse Charlotte (Miriam Stein) opts to serve in the Red Cross. But the horrors Charlotte witnesses quickly erode her youthful idealism, and as her best friend Greta (Katharina Schüettler) aspires to become a famous singer, her Jewish boyfriend Viktor (Ludwig Trepte) attempts to survive by blending in with the Polish Resistance.

Excellent!  This movie is fast paced and has you on the edge of your seat.  Acting by these young stars is outstanding.  I'm not normally one for reading subtitled movies, but it so worth it in this case!  Enjoy

Generation War is mostly excellent, with the caveat that I had to suspend my disbelief at some of the coincidences. Ordinarily, that would affect my review, but I found it so entertaining I could overlook it. The cast is excellent. It was almost surreal, at first, to follow German soldiers in battle. After all, the Nazis were unspeakably evil. But this story concerned five mostly ordinary, mostly decent Germans drawn into Hitler's nightmare against their will. In fact, there were more displays of human decency in Generation War than in House of Cards.

Its a 3 part series. The first part worked well. The second part kept pausing and then quit working completely. The third part didn't work at all. I contacted customer service and they needed more information but as usually gave no easy way to send them the info. The series WOULD has been great, at least the first part was.
