I was sceptic in the beginning to buy this DVD as some reviews were so against it, saying that it did not portray the real effect of the atrocities of the Nazi's. Well I think this is more about those who followed what the main stream culture were and how it affected them, any war has 2 sides to it - people on the "other side" seldom understands really what the "wrong" side's normal human beings went through in spite of how they were indoctrinated. It's not easy and this movie gives a peek into this very scenario. Actors were very good as well as how their characters developed, some scenes are quite gruesome, but it is about war after all. Well executed and a top quality production.

Any attempt to represent the Russian front impartially is almost certainly going to alienate one or other of the various participants' descendants. And so it is with this production, which does have its fair share of controversy! It tells the fictional story of 5 twenty something friends, all of whom are native Berliners, as they each in their own way prepare to deal with the looming crisis of the drive to gain Hitler's `Lebensraum'. The need for this `living space' was outlined in the infamous Mein Kampf dictated to his lackey, Hess, when both were languishing in Bavaria's Landsberg Prison following the failed Munich Beer Hall Putsch in 1924.

Two of the friends are brothers, the eldest, Wilhelm (Volker Bruch), who is a junior army officer, and his pacifist brother, Friedhelm (Tom Schilling), a private in the army, are shortly off to participate in Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of Russia, which begins on June 22nd 1941. Two are girls, Charlotte (Miriam Stein), who is in love with Wilhelm, and Greta (Katharina Schuttler), an opportunistic, somewhat cynical would be singer, working as barmaid. The final member of this group is Viktor (Ludwig Trepte), who is Jewish and therefore, perhaps, the most unlikely. Some critics were left `open-mouthed' at the improbability of any twenty-something German's, having had nine years of Nazi indoctrination, enjoying friendly relations with a Jew. However, Viktor and Greta's relationship is a little more than friendly and in the opening scene during which the group assembles in the bar for the last time before they all have to go their own way, Greta establishes a fateful relationship with an SS officer who interrupts their party, in order to save Viktor from discovery.

Generation War
This was a truly gripping drama showing the horrors of war and how it affected the lives of the young protagonists we meet in the first section. It was so interesting to see it from the German perspective for a change - I watched a recording of a panel discussion on it when I had finished. It has been very controversial and criticised in some of the countries where it has been screened. I thought the ending was a bit unbelievable but I appreciate it was a drama not a documentary.

Brilliant story telling, the war in Russia accurately depicted. This isn't your usual Hollywood nonsense, the interwoven story lines make for compelling, often harrowing viewing. The degeneration of normal human beings caught up in the horror of a racial war is totally convincing. Recommended.

An extraordinary German television series about a group of five young Berliners during the Second World War. A number of Jewish characters, including one of the five, draw out the moral dilemmas of the other four as they struggle to be both loyal Germans and decent human beings in situations where they can only be one or the other. This is an amazingly honest and intelligent effort to portray the psychology of the five, whose characters are sharply delineated by superb directing and acting. Caught up in a war which they did not seek they must nevertheless come to terms with it. My only reservation was the improbability of the Jewish character remaining good friends with the ideologically committed pair amongst the five. I'm not giving any more away!

Truly a good story stunningly portrayed by the actors. It was interesting to see the other side of the conflict using authentic equipment and uniforms. Overall very good.

This German dvd was the best I have seen about the war in Russia. At last a very true version. The scenes of destruction were horrific and real life.
The Germans and the Russians fought the greatest battles in history. The tank battle set in Minsk in Russia was the decisive battle that changed the 2nd World War, and was the biggest tank battle scene ever, with over 7,000 tanks taking part.
The Germans had most of their tanks destroyed by the Russians, and from then on the Russians advanced rapidly towards Germany and the defeat of Nazi Germany.
The way the Germans killed Jews and partisans in huge numbers was typical of the Nazi outlook.
During that time I was a young boy in the UK and plotted the armies on a war map on the wall in the 1940s.
It was good to see the German dvd as they, the Germans, fought this war with Russia.
90% of the German army was stationed in Russia.
The shocking winter in Russia with deep snow caught the Germans unprepared. Planes could not fly, tanks refused to start with frozen oil.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
