A witty script
17 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this humorous episode, Hogan has received word about an Allied probing raid that is to happen the following evening. When they send LeBeau out to look over the area where they planes will be flying, LeBeau sees that they have reinforced the area with 88 millimeter guns that will tear the planes apart. But by the time LeBeau gets back, the Allies have went on radio silence. Hogan has to come up with a plane to destroy the guns.

It just so happens to be around Adolf Hitler's birthday and Hogan makes the commander of the gun-placement believe that he has orders from Berlin for a party. The party is just a diversion so that the Heroes can hopefully sabotage the guns. But time is of the essence.

This was a witty script and very well done by the cast. It was strange seeing Howard Caine playing Major Keitel, in this early show, since he will soon play the Gestapo reoccurring character, Major Hochstetter, to perfection. Overall this was an entertaining show that was enjoyable to watch. It is hard to make Hitler's birthday funny but somehow it was done in this script.
