I don't want to give spoilers away, but I think in the end it was an apology, especially with the Jewish guy's story, as it really deviated from the main story, in my opinion. Jews only made up a small percentage of the population, and even fewer were friends with German soldiers. They had to include it for the sake of political correctness. Can you imagine a series just on German soldiers on the Eastern Front fighting the scourge of the "Worker's Paradise" (Soviet Union) without the Jew character? It would have been outrageous in Germany. The main theme of the story was "look how awesome it was, but then when things turned bad we abandoned our ideals, and because we lost the war, our ideals were wrong." In the modern world, there will never be a truly accurate depiction of the German soldier on the Eastern Front, because if there was, it would show that Germany was right in invading the Soviet Union.
>>28532762 i didnt see it that way. I saw it more along the lines of All Quiet on the Western Front. An attempt to shed the romanticized lens through which we view war and the warrior. I felt it showed how the politics and and grudges of an older generation affected he next and effectively tore them apart.
>>28532839 >the younger brother definitely is one You mean the one who gets bullied for not being dedicated enough played by Tom Shilling? Sure thing >>28532848 In 1940-41 after all the victories Hitler was VERY popular.
>>28533088 >has thoughts that anon doesn't agree with >"He must be a raider from /pol/"!
I browse both forums because I understand that politics and weapons go hand in hand. One is practically useless/meaningless without the other.
When someone asks an opinion of something, I'm not going to hold back because it might be perceived as /pol/ish. I'm an National Socialist, and I like weapons too. Sorry if I hurt your precious sensibilities.
I thought the Jewish guy tunnelling through the carriage floor on the way to Auschwitz cheapened the experience of the Holocaust, they should have made it so he died in the gas chambers sharing the same fate as millions of others. It was almost Disney-esque how he survived.
>>28532701 I watched the whole thing and the documentary for it on BBC. I thought it was great except for the forced propaganda in the last 25 minutes on the last episode. Also in the documentary it was very clear that its just a mash up of events that dont play together in those times this series is trying to represent.. Its just good TV and nothing more.
>>28533157 >"He must be a raider from /pol/"! autistic /pol/ browsers actually believe this.
>One is practically useless/meaningless without the other. just because your board is meaningless and shit-filled doesnt mean you can be retarded over here, we already have enough "XYZ brand"-fags that shit up around here
I just think you should keep your autistic mind-diarrhea on the board that was meant to contain it. I dont care if you come here, but dont start spewing unrelated, retarded, shit out of your mouth.
I literally give no fucks about how pants on head retarded you choose to be with your political ideals, i only care about where you are spewing it. >i dont shit in my kitchen sink.
>>28533268 >muh joos I dont think im the one whos butthurt man. Besides the whole fact that my dislike of political discussion on /k/ leads to you thinking im some sort of Stalin apologists points more to failures in your thought process than anything else.
>>28532970 Yeah, but I hope you can understand that only people who come from /pol/ think this. /k/ is not about politics. You can try to tie the two together as much as you'd like, but you're still breaking board rules so you should expect backlash when you break them. Any decent board on 4chan will have people who care about the rules in order to maintain quality of discussion. If you can't handle that you need to stay on /pol/. It really isn't that complicated.
Not being a douche but, they did get 17 million votes in 1933.
And correspondant Osmar White describes in his book Conquerors' Road how when the Americans invaded germany, the germans quite happily stated that they where nazis. Something that turned increasingly scarce as the germans realized what GIs thought of nazis.
>>28533573 >what does /k/ think of "Generation War"? >Just don't mention anything about the Nazis, Jews, or the Soviet Union.
I liked it when the German officer shot that stinking Soviet Kommisar scum in the back of the head with the blued, well worn, probably mid war production, Walther P38 made in a Mauser factory with byf mark. I liked it when that one German soldier butt stroked a captured Soviet soldier while muttering "God damn Jewish Bolshevik bastard!" with a 1940 production 660 code Mauser K98.
>>28532970 What strikes me about all these pictures and paintings of WW2 soldiers is they all had extremely strong noses. You just don't see strong white noses like that anymore. All the good ones died by the time the war ended :^(
>>28532701 It's definitely worth watching, but it's got its problems. A little pretentious at times, the voice overs are pretty hokey, and there are a few scenes requiring more than the actors involved can deliver. This is especially true of the younger brother. His little rage sessions were laughable.
It smells of some heavy-handed political correctness here and there, but I'll let someone else touch that one.
That said, it's definitely worth watching. The perspective is one Americans just don't know well enough, and it does a brutal job of driving home the effects of war: disillusionment, combat fatigue, and all the greatest hits. What really hit me is just how fucking helpless most of the characters are in their situations. They have little to no control over the causes they think they're fighting for. By the end of the series, every last one of them are literally struggling just to stay alive, and a few have killed non-combatants just to see another sunrise. It's heavy shit.
It's probably one of the better war series out there, and I'd have no problem putting considering it for a top ten list of WWII films.
