Hogan and his men are given the task of killing all the German generals, who will be meeting for a conference in town. Although it is considered pretty much a suicide mission, they readily accept the mission. They plan on achieving their goal by planting bombs in the meeting room with the aid of chef Jacques Mornay, a French resistance fighter who was a chef before the war. However, the plan hits a snag when they find out that one of the generals, Felix Mercer, is really a British agent. Mercer then informs them that there are very important battle plans that must not be destroyed. Can Hogan get the plans out of room before the bombs go off?

Klink and Shultz are in the banquet room with the rest of the generals. If the bombs planted in the room had gone off as planned, they would have been killed as well. How did Hogan and the others plan to continue their operation at Stalag 13 with new (and likely more alert) replacements? See more »


Col. Wilhelm Klink: [reading a list of invited people to the meeting] It doesn't have the name "Colonel Klink" in there. Probably an oversight at headquarters.
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: I consider it the perfect oversight.

An above average offering.
27 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode begins as Burkhalter is discussing a meeting of important Generals that will take place near the Stalag and Klink will be the host. Hogan has already got word from London that the Generals must be killed before they can act on their plan in occupied France.

Hogan, with help from the underground, will stage a plot where explosions will be scattered throughout the room. During the meeting the explosions will go off killing everyone.

But right before the plan is to be carried out, Hogan receives another message from London stating to cancel the plans since a certain General, Felix Mercer, will be attending and he has been working with the Allies. But the dye is already cast. Hogan is going to have to find a way to rescue the General, and the secret papers, from a room bound for destruction.

This was not the most unique script of the series but one that had enough material to make for a nice watch for the viewer. In fact nothing was really remarkable in the story but it did conclude with favorable results for the Heroes. Just an above average production.
