Cpl. Peter Newkirk: Sir, I think this time we've bit off more than we can chew.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: All we've gotta do is get Klink to believe there's a rocket gun factory in England, get him to pry the location out of Carter, then he notifies the Luftwaffe, they send over their bombers, our anti-aircraft knock 'em off, and we've relieved the pressure on London. Simple.

After some entertaining shows this was a let-down.
24 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

In one of the more plain episode that we have recently seen, this show starts out with the Germans advising about their bombing of London. Hogan, with the help of Allied command, is going to set a trap for the Germans by saying that a new rocket plant is being built in a nearby London community. And when the German set off to destroy the fake plant they will shoot down many of the bombers that have caused problem in London.

Carter is suppose to bait Klink into calling for a local General where the location of the fake plant will be revealed. So when General Von Lintzer arrives at Stalag 13, the General wants to take credit for the information leaving Klink on the sidelines. But little does Klink know, the sidelines is the safest place.

The only thing that seemed incorrect about the story was how foolish the writer made Carter. I feel sure they felt like it would provide some comic value to the script but all it did was make one of our heroes look like a idiot or shall we say dummkopf. There is some good lines in this episode but they are few and far between. After some really entertaining shows this seemed like a let down.
