Season 1, Episode 4
The Tipping Point – This moving series retells the story of the greatest war mankind had ever seen in a unique way. It allows viewers to experience World War I solely through the eyes of those who experienced it. Based on this concept, an international team of authors and researchers, as well as broadcasters from all over the world have chosen the 14 most vivid and emotional stories left behind through personal diaries, letters, postcards and telegrams, from those who lived it. Yves Congar’s father is brought to Germany as a forced labourer. The family remains behind without support. Yves experiences the end of the war in the cellar of his parent’s house while outside the machine guns rattle. Ernst Junger has led his unit through countless battles. Now the men surrender, completely exhausted. When Jünger returns to Germany, it is only to find that a revolution has broken out.
