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
