Storyline

Another atmospheric series by the creators of "Secret Army", also inspired by real events during The Second World War, The Fourth Arm tells the tale of an OSS mission to destroy the V2 ballistic missile factory, situated in an unbombable underground bunker. It begins with the recruting of ordinary people, and their highly demanding training, based In the seclusion of a large house in the country. They are each given a code name comprising the French word for a different type of bird, such as 'Hibou' and 'Chardonneret'. As the series unfolds, they train for a parachute jump, and perform a trial operation in a real French village. The series builds into an extremely tense climax, as they finally depart on the real mission. Can their extraordinary training give such ordinary people a real chance to succeed?
