Saunders is wounded and trapped behind enemy lines while trying to provide cover for Doc and Caje as they take a wounded Little John back to their lines. Saunders wakes in a German Field Hospital to find that a French worker has put him in German clothes to prevent him being shipped to a POW Camp. As a result he tries to escape by passing himself off as a shell shocked German soldier. Placed on a train going to the German rear with a German officer who considers many of the wounded as malingerers, Saunders and a captured American flyer manage to jump from the train and escape. As they try to make their way back to their lines the flyer is shot and killed by a German patrol and Saunders is taken with them. He is befriended by a veteran German sergeant who is convinced he is a wounded Afrika Corps soldier and decides to look after him. As they are travelling to their destination they are ambushed by Americans who are looking for prisoners and information and, in the fire fight that follows, Saunders has to shoot and kill the German sergeant.
