Storyline

In this spin-off from the World war II resistance-series "Secret Army", the tables turn: ambitious, cruel Gestapo-officer Ludwig Kessler, the most implacable Nazi hunter of every opponent to the Reich, can no longer deny its rule is militarily annihilated by the Allies. He must now flee himself, being a first-rate war criminal responsible for numerous torture- and execution victims, but manages to get away with a fortune and starts a new life as a businessman, still hoping for another rise of the master race to power, in which his part should be even more prominent, from a (neo-)fascist colony in Paraguay. Meanwhile Albert Foiret, his former elusive chief of prey, and some of his collaborators now play a part in the hunt for the former master-hunter... Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent
5 May 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this when it was first shown on the BBC. It takes the story on, post-war, of what becomes of Gestapo chief Kessler. Hopefully UK Drama will show this - as they are now showing Secret Army.

All the superlatives about Secret Army apply equally to this. It may be a cliche, but drama like this makes the BBC license fee worthwhile!
