Hogan and his heroes will go on to concoct some outrageous schemes, but this early one should not go unnoticed.
While on a routine mission, circumstances demand that Hogan and Carter capture a German general and sneak him into Stalag 13 as a captured Allied commando. Some sneaky and cunning conversation between Klink and Hogan guarantees that the "prisoner" is treated like all the others.
While in captivity with our Heroes, the gang makes an unbelievably clever scenario come true -- convince the captured German general that he is dying in order to extract vital military information from him on "his deathbed."
LeBeau parades a coffin into the room to further convince Schmidt he's on his last leg, and eventually the boys all sing Christmas songs because their prisoner has no hope of reaching the next holiday season...
