Klink's Rocket
15 February 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

When Colonel Klink tells the POWs how well the war is going for the Germans. Hogan and the men are upset and he plans to show Klink something different.

Allied command sets a trap of a new rocket plant being built in a fictional area. Once the Germans find out about it and go to shoot their target, the British army would be in position to shoot down the German planes.

Colonel Klink needs to be convinced that a new POW has a part of this new rocket that he gave to Carter. In reality the part is something from Klink's own lamp that Hogan stole.

When Carter is interrogated, he needs to tell Klink that the town of Leadingham is where the rocket factory is located.

Things get complicated instead of interrogating Carter, Klink gives him gourmet food. Klink wants to wait until a local general arrives and then ask Carter questions. Trouble is Carter has trouble remembering the name of the town.

Over 50 years on, the whole episode looks silly and infantile.
