I saw this moving drama when it was shown on British TV and thought it was one of the realistic and generous tributes to those who survived the Second World War and are coping still with the emotional aftermath. A group of veterans gather for a battlefield reunion in Northern Europe and not everything or everyone is as they might first appear to be. I won't spoil the story for you but things gradually unfold to reveal not just some the events which the characters have survived but the strength and greatness of their spirits. The setting is lovely and the acting - as one would expect from such a star-studded cast - impeccable!
Although the material is serious, it is dealt with in a gentle manner and had its funny moments so it made for extremely watchable TV without fear of any unpleasant flashbacks. (In other words, sensitive older people would not find it distressing.) At long last this BBC drama is available on Region 2 DVD for Europeans. Try not to miss it - it is one of the best dramas from Britain.
