The Dawns Here Are Quiet - Outstanding Russian TV mini-series

Thanks to amazon prime I've recently been given the chance to watch three excellent Russian TV series: Sophia, Ekaterina, and, just starting now, The Dawns Here Are Quiet, which is set in 1942 during "The Great Patriotic War" in a small village were a wounded sergeant of the war has been given command of two anti aircraft batteries as what should be a soft assignment. Well worth watching.
