    Not acw but properly of interest to most of you.

    In 1864 Denmark fought (and lost) a war against Prussia and Austria.

    Naturally it is the 150th year for the war and a new TVseries about the war have bin made and will premiere in September this year.

    The first trailer have just bin made public... thought I would share it.
    (EDIT: now with english subs... they are rather badly synchronized, but better than nothing)

    There is an American Civil War connection to the Second Schleswig War. . . the CSS Stonewall.
    After months of international intrigue, Denmark secretly sold the ocean going ironclad to the Confederacy.

    (The ironclad was originally bought by Denmark for use in the Second Schleswig War)

    As with movies and TVseries about acw it will offcause be interesting to see what interpretation they use on the differnet events. and how correct it will be in regard to uniforms, military equipment and all the rest.

    From what I have read, it will be 8 episodes in total. Each about 60 minutes.

    Looks great. Hope it gets shown over here - there's been a lot of Scandinavian stuff on TV lately that's been very popular.

    They have added english subs to the trailer.
    Don't think it was done by a professional... the synchronization is rather bad... but guess it is better than nothing.
