Storyline

The five man crew of an American bomber shot down over Italy arrive at a German interrogation station named Dulag Luft. Although reminded to provide only their name, rank and serial number, the new POWs quickly fall prey to the cunning tricks and non-violent interrogation techniques of their Nazi captors and beginning providing seemingly harmless information, which is quickly and cleverly pieced together to become valuable military intelligence. The Germans are excellent at identifying the weakness of each prisoner and selecting the interrogation techniques most suitable for that particular prisoner, like buddying up to the friendly, further scaring those already scared, and prodding the braggarts into boasting about American capabilities and intended actions.

Compare This Picture with book "The Interrogator," by Raymond F. Toliver
23 May 2008 | by (Port Orford, Oregon, United States of America) – See all my reviews

Dear All,

Please read "The Interrogator," by Raymond F. Toliver. Toliver tells the true story of Hanns Joachim Scharff, one of the Luftwaffe's best P.O.W. interrogators. Sheer psychological tricks let him extract loads of information from his "guests." He tortured nobody because he did not need to do so. Years after the war, in the United States, some of these same men threw a party for him, despite the fact that several had felt severe remorse over having inadvertently disclosed so much.

How successfully a viewer of "Resisting Enemy Interrogation" could have withheld information from Scharff, I cannot say.

Sincerely,

Gordon F. Corbett
