User Reviews

Brilliant look at WW2
12 October 2003 | by (Clifford, ND) – See all my reviews

To find this mini-series repulsive is ridiculous. Its a more intricate and enjoyable version of 'Hogans Heroes'. Taken from some actual plots used by Nazis during the war, it uses brilliant writing, acting and producing to twine a tale of counterfeiting to smash the English currency and topple the war into Germany's favor.

Brilliant humor. It should be released of DVD!
