The year is 1939 and the lives of seven friends growing up in Seelow Germany are about to change dramatically. Adolf Hitler, their beloved leader, has promised to resurrect the Fatherland and provide work for every willing German. The talk around the dinner table every night is filled with hope about the glorious age promised for their country.
Through the eyes of Blaz Senft, The Boys of Seelow chronicles the lives of seven German boys as they progress through the Hitler Youth program with juvenile excitement at the idea of serving in the Wehrmacht. Their heads are filled with visions of future conquests and glorious victories. As the war turns against the Reich though, they find themselves thrust into a desperate battle for their lives, their friendship, and their nation’s destiny while the Soviets draw ever closer to their home.
