A reminder of what it was to be prisoner in a POW camp
I've just discovered these series which of course were not shown on the french television, we do prefer the stupid ones like The bold and the beautiful which runs and re-runs year after year!
Here at last the cast is great Darcy is the perfect for this role pilot with his "beau ténébreux" looks. I really enjoyed it and I think the directors or ITV were quite right to stop it after six episodes otherwise the story would have repeated itself. Here we just have to imagine what were the secrets to carry to London and may be others would have escaped from the camp.
Someone wrote "There are of course some moments of unimaginable cruelty". The poor guy is really naive. Do you think that the Nazis were following the Geneva bylaws concerning the POW? They were as ruthless in POW camps than in the other sinister camps discovered in 1944 and 1945. I'm not sure that there even has been a Captain of a camp ever so easy going as the one shown on the movie.
