Synopsis Edit

A war correspondent, Walter Hobson, who is shot down and is the only survivor from the plane, is rescued by Hogan and the heroes. Hogan's current mission is to deliver a radio set to the underground. This mission is jeopardized when the Gestapo finds an article written by Hobson in an American newspaper several months later, that thanks the "unsung heroes" in a German POW camp that saved him.

Story Notes Edit

  • This is the one hundred and first episode of the series, but is the one hundredth and second episode to be shown on television and is the tenth episode shown for the Fourth Season.
  • James Sikking would later find noteriety as Lt. Howard Hunter, the SWAT team leader on Hill Street Blues, and for his brief cameo as Captain Styles in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. He is among a number of actors who make frequent return appearances as different characters in the series.
  • This is the last episodic appearance of Sergeant Olsen, although he is played by a different actor.
  • Carter mentions being in the Boy Scouts.
  • Hogan expresses concern about how well he is now able to predict Klink's reaction to his machinations.
  • This is the only episode that addresses the basic premise of the series itself: an undercover Allied rescue and sabotage operation operating from a German prisoner-of-war camp deep inside Germany.
  • Hochstetter carries a World War I German Luger pistol, instead of the standard SS-issue Walther P38.

Timeline Notes and Speculations Edit

  • This episode takes place in two parts, separated by a month or more (most likely two), during the summer of 1944. The date is mandated by Hochstetter's presence.
  • One month prior to the events in the second half of this episode, American war correspondent Walter Hobson will publish a self-censored account of his experiences with our heroes in an American newspaper.
  • Judging from the size and appearance of the shortwave transmitter received by our heroes, this may have been sent to replace the one seized from Wilhelmina's apartment by the Gestapo in "LeBeau And The Little Old Lady."

Quotes Edit

Bloopers Edit

  • Hobson is supposed to have been aboard an American B-17 when he is shot down, yet the plane we see being shot down is a British Lancaster.
