  •  Forgot - the novel "Fatherland" .. (1+ / 0-)

    A good read. Imagining what could have occurred if Nazi Germany had fought the Allies to a stalemate, approached in the form of a police crime drama.

    Don't think I ever caught the made-for-TV movie, but with Rutger Hauer and Miranda Richardson, and Golden Globe nominated (she won) performances and picture, I may need to keep an eye out.

    More trivia - Werner Klemperer (aka, Colonel Klink) narrates the audiobook version.

    ..now, where did I leave my torches and villagers?

      who took great glee in mocking the Third Reich - evidently he accepted the part only if the producers would promise that the Nazis would never, ever beat Hogan and his POW team.

      Weirdly enough, there actually was a Colonel Hogan who was imprisoned at Stalag 13.  He wasn't a commando, though.
