Show Summary

The Rat Patrol was an ABC television series that aired for two seasons from 1966 to 1968. The show was loosely inspired by the Long Range Desert Group's actions against Axis forces in the North African Campaign of World War II, and followed the adventures of four Allied soldiers: Sergeant Sam Troy (Christopher George), Sergeant Jack Moffit (Gary Raymond), Private Mark T. Hitchcock (Lawrence Casey) and Private Tully Pettigrew (Justin Tarr). The show's first season was very successful, finishing as the 23rd highest rated TV show in 1966-67, and spawning numerous tie-ins such as boardgames, toys, models, and a feature-length film. The series is also notable for giving Eric Braeden (credited as Hans Gudegast) his first recurring TV role as The Rat Patrol's nemesis, Captain Hans Dietrich of the Afrika Korps.
