Colonel Hogan leads a ragtag band of POW's caught behind German lines in this popular television comedy. The bumbling Germans give Hogan and his crew plenty of opportunities to sabotage their war efforts. Colonel Klink is more concerned with having everything run smoothly and avoiding any trouble with his superiors (especially anything that might result in his being reassigned and sent to the front) than with being tough on Hogan and his fellow prisoners.

Did You Know?
Throughout the series, Colonel Hogan and Sergeant Carter are said to be from the U.S. Air Force. This is incorrect. There are times they are said to be Army Air Corps. This is also incorrect. The U.S. Air Force did not exist until 1947. Prior to that, this branch was part of the Army. It was the U.S. Army Air Corps from 1926 until June of 1941 (before the U.S. entered World War II). From June 1941, until the U.S. Air Force was created separately from the Army in 1947, it was the U.S. Army Air Forces. Actually, the Army Air Corps became a combat branch of the U.S. Army Air Force, and was not done away with completely until 1947, when the U.S. Air Force was created. See more
