A 279 minute view of WWII from the lives of five young Germans. Normally, Americans do not see the view of young soldiers and collaborators. And we do not see too much about the struggle of Germans and Russians in Russian territory. The five protagonists each have their own different experience and only very occasionally do the protagonists meet one other. Thus instead of getting one story, we really get five stories.

Very well made WW2 tv mini-series from the German perspective. The atrocities of war make some parts of the series very difficult to watch.

I'm a "war baby" so I grew up with WW2 as back story. This is a riveting, well-written and well-acted story of 5 friends on the eve of the war. This is the story of what happened to each of them. Highly recommend.

You basically can't find a KCLS patron that didn't praise "Generation War". I found both DVD's riveting and brilliantly written. Every minute was gripping. You really become involved with the characters and this true story. I was privileged to see it!

The second half is very intensive. Background music is also good.
