Storyline

After a surreal lecture on telling allied parachutists from German ones, the platoon is ordered to pick up a stranded U-boot's crew. Wilson feels live hand-grenades are too dangerous for his hot-head mates and acts accordingly. As HQ's armed escort is late, the Kriegsmarine captain can first play mind-games by drafting a reckoning 'list', then take Hodges hostage. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

During the filming of the last scene, someone was busy mending a fence just down the road and could be heard from the location the scene was been shot. In order to film when the person wasn't working they had a runner, running between the two locations telling the crew when they could film and when the man could continue working on the fence.
