superb - Generation War: Series review by HM

Spoiler Alert
23/12/2014

Generation War is a wonderfully crafted series. It is well acted, and the script is brilliant. It is interesting to see the developments of war from the German perspective. Some Germans were portrayed as cruel and ruthless, mostly how we have always portrayed them ourselves. Some, however, were portrayed as decent, ordinary people who were scared of war and didn't understand it. If this series was a film, it would have surely won an Oscar, it is that good.
