War is hell IV

My family is back to watching Foyle's War. It chronicles the activities of a police detective during World War II in Britain. Each episode does not just involve a murder mystery. It also usually has a focus on some social or historical dimension to war-time Britain: mental health of returning soldiers, bootlegging, conscientious objectors, Nazi sympathizers, racism in US troops, government cover ups, repatriation of white Russian POWs, the role of the church,.....
Hence, I always find it quite educational as well as entertaining.

This one of the most impressive TV series I have seen. Yet, I also find it dark and tragic at times. It leaves no doubt that people are sinful and war is hell, even for the "victors" and those who don't see direct combat!
