World on Fire is an adrenalized, emotionally gripping and resonant World War II drama that follows the intertwining fates of ordinary people in Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the United States, as they grapple with the effects of the war on their everyday lives.

Masterpiece: World on Fire

Summer 1939. Harry, a translator at the British Embassy in Warsaw, is falling in love with Polish waitress Kasia. When German tanks roll into Poland, and Britain declares war on Germany, Harry and Kasia face terrible choices. With her life in grave danger, can Harry help her -- and if he can, how will he ever explain himself to Lois Bennett, the girl he left behind in Manchester? As the Nazi threat spreads across Europe, Kasia must choose between love and fighting for her country, Harry must find his place in the world, and Lois must seize new opportunities the war presents.

The conflict overturns everything for Harry's snobbish mother Robina; for Douglas, Lois' pacifist father; and for her younger brother Tom, who joins the Navy and finds himself under fire in one of the first major battles of the war. In Berlin, outspoken American journalist Nancy risks her life trying to help her neighbors; while in Paris, Nancy's nephew, medic Webster refuses to leave the city and the man he loves.

World on Fire traverses the first year of WWII, from ordinary life in England to the beaches of Dunkirk, diving deep into the hearts and minds of those living their lives during this extraordinary time as they grapple with the unthinkable: a world in flames.

Great programing, great acting, great cinematography. I was very disappointed as to how episode #5 ended, leaving us to our own imagination. But judging from the other reviews, it sounds like you might have a second season planned and we can know for sure what happened on that hill side escape from the German troops.

Rating 10 out of 20. Season 1 was remarkable with its acting, script, unpredictable turns. Can we have a Season 2? We were left hanging which is only what the Germans do.
