A groundbreaking German TV drama, Generation War depicts the lives of five German friends from 1941-45: two brothers who become Wehrmacht soldiers, a singer, a nurse, and their Jewish friend. Described as a German 'Band of Brothers', the series drew record ratings for ZDF, sparked a nationwide discussion about the role of ordinary Germans during the Second World War, and was called 'a turning point in German television' by Der Spiegel.
Berlin 1941. Highly-decorated officer Wilhelm is off to the eastern front with his younger brother Friedhelm, a sensitive dreamer more interested in books than warfare. Deeply in love with Wilhelm is Charlotte, a young nurse who feels her duty calling and agrees to serve in the Wehrmacht, also on the eastern front. While talented singer Greta dreams of being another Marlene Dietrich, her Jewish boyfriend Viktor begins to realise that the lives of both he and his family will be in grave danger if they stay in Germany. As the war takes hold, none of the friends can imagine how the conflict will ultimately change not only them, but the rest of the world.
