The prisoners are confined to the barracks because a German general comes to camp. He turns out to be an old friend of Klink's, Gen. Hans 'Hansi' Stofle, commanding officer of the Afrika Korps. When Hogan tells London about this, they tell him to detain the general because he is to lead an attack against the Allied forces the next day. As the Heroes plan, two things happen: they find out he has a girl with him, and a Gestapo officer, Major Zolle, comes into camp. He suspects that there is more to the eye at Stalag 13, and he is determined to find out what is going on. He has his men search the camp for tunnels, secret passages and the like, but Hogan's men thwart him at every turn. Hogan has LeBeau cook for Stofle and his girl, and comes to Stofle with a plan to elude the Gestapo, but it is just a way to detain him so he does not lead the attack. Hogan has Stofle dress as a POW and get in his car, but he points this out to Schultz, so that Zolle can capture him. In the end, the attack is thwarted, Stofle is angry at Klink and the Gestapo leaves. Hogan covinces Klink that it is for the best.
