series premiered in 1968.
The main plot is pretty special: All actions take place during World War II and we are following the German troops who are mostly just dug down in one place! The highly satirical series is also very dark - both in environment, dialogue and graphics - and there are no main characters at all. The soldiers, whose sufferings, problems and joys we follow, differ from story to story; they are just called Fritz, Otto, or Schultz rendering them completely anonymous.
The title Sturmtruppen is originally German meaning Stormtroopers in English.
