Just finished watching this on PBS Masterpiece (through Prime here in Canada) and it was fantastic. It's a true story and is just beautifully told. Reminded me of Band of Brothers.
"This Danish drama series focuses on the Second Schleswig War between the Kingdom of Denmark and the German Confederation. In the middle of the 19th century. Two brothers, Laust and Peter, grow up in poor conditions in south Funen, away from other troubled lands. Their father returns home after a three-year battle with Prussia in 1851 and, as they get older, they become more curious about the world outside their hometown. Both brothers fall in love with the estate manager's daughter, Inge, a beautiful, well-read and fearless woman. In 1864, however, war is on the horizon as Prime Minister Monrad stirs up political unrest when he declares the province of Schleswig as property of the Danes, despite a peace treaty stating otherwise."
I am of Danish ancestry, so for me it was very interesting to learn about how nationalism was (and is?) a very big part of their cultural identity.
