    There aren't many TV shows or movies portraying the German side of the second world war, but Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter shows their side of the story and as with most things, it's not always black and white. The story is about a group of five friends and you'll follow their lives trough the second world war. Wilhelm and Friedhelm are two brothers who are sent to the Russian front. Greta is a singer dreaming of becoming a star. Charlotte just signed up to become an army nurse and has a very nationalistic mind. And finally there's Viktor a German Jew, trying to get out of the country before it's too late. During the three 1.5 hour long episodes the makers take you to the eastern front of the second world war and you'll find yourself in Russia and Poland during the worst battles. The promised victory by Christmas has come and gone and after another year in battle doubt starts to set in. If you expect hour long battles like in The Pacific you're out of luck, but there's plenty of well executed action. The actors are excellent and production value is on par with big-budget HBO shows. If you like Band of Brothers or The pacific this is definitely a must-see!


    Band of Brothers is pretty much the standard when it comes to war tv shows, and comparing the two is unfair to both, but Generation War is at the very least on par with Band of Brothers.


    Me ha encantado!!! Basada en hechos reales y desde el lado Nazi.


    What an epic series full of emotion and mixed feelings really enjoyed it.It was nice to see the WW2 from the "other" side.


    I almost hesitate to say it's better than Band of Brothers because that is a great show in it's own right... but it's better than Band of Brothers

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
