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

Disappointing
20 October 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As the follow-on from Secret Army, Kessler lacks everything Secret Army had, tension, drama, good storylines and plotting and well-drawn characters. Alan Dobie's role as Richard Bauer is poorly developed and you never manage to find out why exactly he is pursuing Kessler or why. Nitza Saul's role, as the young Israeli chasing Kessler and helping Bauer, lacks any definition at all. Alison Glennie, as Kessler's daughter Ingrid, is little more than a cardboard cutout pretend Nazi. Not one of Gerald Glaister's better efforts
