  • Allied soldiers use and abuse the best Der Fuhrer has to offer.

    10
    In order to make the best of their ordeal as prisoners of war, Allied soldiers (led by Col. Hogan) find creative ways to amuse themselves, and at the same time, tie up the Nazi war machine. Their main opposition is the stammslager (POW Camp) commandant, Col. Klink, a Luftwaffe officer who would rather be anywhere but at the camp. However, Klink, being ever the good German, tries to do his best at keeping the prisoners in line (and in the camp). Klink's chief subordinate is Sgt. Schultz, who being even more ignorant than Klink, is the prisoners' unwitting accomplice in many of their schemes. The show plays delightfully off of flaws in the German character, such as perfectionism and efficiency. Of note: many people often think that the camp portrayed in "Hogan's Heroes" is a concentration camp. It is not. The conditions for concentration camp inmates were far more horrible than those for prisoners of war. The show does not make light of the Holocaust, or other wartime atrocities.
