Colonel Hogan leads a band of POW's caught behind German lines. The Germans give Hogan and his crew plenty of opportunities to sabotage their war efforts. Colonel Klink (Commandant) 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.
