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.

Not in the same league as Secret Army(you will be happy to hear,Albert)
Bit of a damp squib,this series. I'm inclined to agree with Clifford Rose,a series dealing with "Kessler's progress"in the immediate postwar period would have been far more interesting. I'm not sure what Alan Dobie's task is in "Kessler".He more or less reprises his disenchanted Prince Andrei role....waxing on about the futility of all and general. I looked at the South American scenery and began to feel that exile to Paraguay was punishment enough for the geriatric gestapo! The little Israeli girl was a pretty unbelievable chic- I would have been much more comfortable had Major Reinhart's twin brother joined the hunt for Kessler!
