Storyline

The war on the Russian front goes disastrously wrong, so Frieldhelm's realistic pessimism spreads among the decimated comrades in arms, who bravely continue the near-hopeless battle assignments in a last hope offensive on Kursk. Friedhelm survives by wearing a Soviet uniform, only to be shot by his own men, yet is saved against the odds when nurse Charlotte begs the surgeon, who becomes her lover. At home, his father proves heartless, caring only for the presumed dead in action of firstborn hero Wilhelm, who actually deserted to live in a wood cabin but is found and condemned to the firing squad. Viktor is caught, sent to a concentration camp but escapes with a Polish girl. They are nearly denounced but brought to the partisans, who mistrust the odd couple. Greta visits the front, sees the horror in Charlotte's field hospital and is arrested for publicly questioning the Nazi victory. Her lover learns about his child while questioning her.

Goofs

After the briefing for operation "Zitadelle" (Citadel), Feigl dismisses Winter. Winter replies by saluting with the flat right hand to the forehead. This is incorrect as by the time, the Hitler salute was mandatory for military personnel when not wearing headgear. Winter does not wear one and being an officer himself, for sure he would have been aware of this. See more »

Quotes

Wilhelm Winter: Most people think that war is about fighting. That's not true. It's about waiting: the next attack, the next meal, the next morning.
