I haven't seen it in years but I was musing about it the other day. They were "interned" in a POW camp for purposes of...? Occasionally they would go out blow stuff up or gather some Intel, or maybe sneak out the occasional Italian, but seem to spend more time squabbling with the camp staff. With all those guys in there seems a lot of investment with not much return.

A little early in the day to be posting under the influence, don't you think?

One of the most mysterious conundrums of our time I agree. Second only to the enigma that was/is The A-Team...

I will guess, Col pay was 100 buks, down to privates at 20. So for 350 USD, they got intel, sabotage, escape for POW prevention and the good life as POW's.

I think that is major bang for the buck.

And if Col Hogan wasnt such a freak, he could be a Senator today!

If the Germans were as inept in real life as protrayed in 'Hogan's Hero's", even the French could have beat them...

They seemed to be well fed too...

My Grandfather wouldn't let me watch that show while growing up. I think it had something do to with the six months he spent in PW camp. He said when he escaped he was 5'8" and 110lbs. Amazing story... wish I would have taken notes the few times he'd talk about it.
