General Burkhalter wines, dines and supplies women for Col. Hogan to precede a proposition: one million dollars in exchange for sending him and a Luftwaffe officer to England to steal an American P-51 airplane. Initially reluctant, Hogan accepts as a means to expose a Nazi espionage ring Burkhalter alluded to. The Luftwaffe companion - Klink.
Did You Know?
A US Army air crewman tells Hogan he has just flown his 50th mission, and his tour of duty is therefore ended. US Army air crewmen were allowed to return home after flying fewer missions than that--25 to 35, depending on how late in the war their tour of duty occurred. See more
