Inspired by real events, the classic BBC period drama series, Secret Army , is a gripping and authentic portrayal of the lives of a secret group of Belgian resistance members, aka Lifeline, during World War II.

Takes you there!
Wonderful series about a network of citizens helping get many of Allies' pilots back home. I enjoy WWII programs and I highly recommend this series. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The title fit the movie.
A mundane and boring series of movies. The whole scenario may well be true, but it was still boring.
