9 out of 10 people found the following review useful.
Full of irony, 8 July 1999
Author: Jack Austin Crawford from Burnet, Texas (USA)

The idea of a comedy about a prisoner of war camp is quite far-fetched, even ridiculous at first glance. However, this series brought it off for seven years. Two sources of irony about the show: John Banner and Robert Clary were both Jewish, and Clary had even been a holocaust survivor.
