"Generation War"

I watched episode one of "Generation War" today on Netflicks.  It has been described as the German "Band of Brothers" but it is more than that, a combination of the home front and the fighting on the Russian front from the German perspective.  Five friends (two brothers in the Army, two girls, one an Army nurse, the other a singer and girlfriend to a Jewish man, and the Jewish boyfriend of the singer vow to meet again in the spring of 1941 in Berlin for Christmas.  As the Missus said, that probably won't happen.

A very realistic and powerful drama, poignant and sad.  Good thing there are only three episodes, I wouldn't be able to handle more.  I highly recommend it.
