    = Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter =

    (German series, roughly "Our Mother, Our Fathers" - might have another title in your home country).

    Five friends from Berlin and their ordeals between 1941 and 1945. It has not been too well recived in Poland and Russia for supposedly painting the Germans too much as victims - though I don't quite agree myself. I think the series shows with all clarity that being the canno-fodder in a dictatorship sucks on an epic scale. I also think the series does a good job of portraying the brutal and unforgiving nature of the war in the east.


    I found the episodes on youtube. There are episodes without subtitles (but with somewhat lower quality) - these episodes here should have subtitles in English and Spanish:

    Episode 1 - Ein andere Zeit ("Another time")



    Episode 2 - Ein anderer Krieg ("An different kind of war")



    Episode 3 - Ein anderes Land ("A different country")

    My favorite documentary about the highly famed/infamous Waffen-SS, Hitlers bodyguard that grew to be his ideological army. Quite objective, which I treasure in historical documentaries.

    I havnt seen fenrir's recomandation before now. Its an amazing WW2 series in 3 parts, from the perspective of 5 young germans. One of the best series i have ever seen. Each part lasts roughly 90min. Must see if you havnt already!

    War Documentaries/TV series (Not movies!)

    I downloaded this as a torrent from a site called ExtraTorrent. I use this regularly
    Here is the link for Generation War ( English subs ) Quality is not too bad. (Edit: removed link - please dont post torrent links here, so the unicorn can stay a happy camper)

    Also heartily recommended are his memoirs, "Wings on my sleeve". Just to give you an idea of his utter badassitude, here's a list of all the aircraft he's flown.

    The guy was a legend and the reason I would like to see the New Years Honours list scrapped. They hand out Knighthoods to simpering cretins and the ex incompetent’s of one political party or another and the real hero's are not recognised.
