In WW2 France, Rene Artois runs a small café where Resistance fighters, Gestapo men, German Army officers and escaped Allied POWs interact daily, ignorant of one another's true identity or presence, exasperating Rene.
This is a terrific series of 52 episodes, following the Ashton family of Liverpool through the war years, 1938-1945. Writing and acting are superb, and you will be hooked from the first episode until the end. The entire series of "A Family at War" is now available on DVD. However, be sure your DVD player supports Region 2 (PAL) discs, as Region 1 (NTSC) machines will not be able to play them. You may wish to visit A Family at War (Fan Site) at www.baylor.edu/afamilyatwar. This site includes a complete episode guide, cast photos, a slide show with theme music, links to related sites, and information on how to join a discussion group (of which series creator and principal writer John Finch is a member).
