Not a war but a soldiers movie
Everyone that expects a war movie like "The Bridge" or "The longest day" will probably be quite disappointed after seeing this movie. However, I never found a movie which captures the atmosphere of a soldiers life and problems better than 08/15.
This is not a film that focuses on historical battles or dramatic highlights in WW2, but rather on a common soldiers life and his chaotic way through the war.
Even during the second episode, which plays at the ostfront its never the war which the main focus is on but the ordinary soldiers and their interactions.
