Anyway I won't be too critical on Generation War, as a piece of entertainment it's 5 stars but if you're looking for something that is historically accurate that represents the period of time from a German perspective then it will leave you feeling a bit disappointing.
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.
Exceptional story and exceptional cast.
Don't hesitate, give this DVD a try.
