5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best series ever made!, 20 Dec 2003
This review is from: Secret Army: The Complete First Series [DVD] [1977] (DVD)
I was far from home, working in Indianapolis, IN, when I discovered a tiny public station run by a small local college. They aired an episode of SECRET ARMY every Saturday at 7:00 PM. I was hooked halfway through the first episode. This series had everything: nerve wracking suspense, unexpected turns and twists in the plots, reaistic dialogue, and a memorable lineup of characters played very ably by outstanding actors. I envy you Brits for having the DVD series available! The other big plus to this series is that it showed how life really was under Nazi rule. While several German soldiers are played sympathetically, the series does show that the Nazi machine was ruthless and efficient, and it was run by men who were ruthless and efficient. If you have secondary level children, this is a great educational tool to show them the way it was under nazi occupation.
I found this series rivetting, thought-provoking, and at times troubling. But it really brought home to me how much was at stake when Hitler was making war, and how so much was given by ordinary people who rose to do extraordinary things in order to save the world from naziism. I wish the series were not so under-appreciated by the BBC itself. It deserves praise for being so well done and remaining such a memorable television experience.
