Billed as a German BAND OF BROTHERS, the blockbuster miniseries Generation War vividly depicts the lives of five young German friends forced to navigate the unconscionable moral compromises of life under Hitler. Level-headed, highly decorated officer Wilhelm (Volker Bruch) goes off to the eastern front with his sensitive younger brother Friedhelm (Tom Schilling). Deeply in love with Wilhelm is Charlotte (Miriam Stein), a young nurse who looks forward to serving in the Red Cross. Greta (Katherina Schüttler) is a talented singer who longs to become another Marlene Dietrich, while her Jewish boyfriend Viktor (Ludwig Trepte) fights for his life while hiding among members of the Polish Resistance.

Through extraordinary performances, these five exceptional young German actors fill their archetypal characters with the certainty of youth, and then allow it to drain away slowly with each successive month of war. Valor, courage, and betrayal come to the fore in this powerful German epic that shows the everyday realities of wartime life from a deeply personal perspective. German critics have been nearly universal in their praise, with Der Spiegel calling Generation War a "turning point in German television" and a review in national newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung describing the film as "the first and last chance .. to ask our grandparents about their true biographies, their immoral compromises...the missed chances to act."
