While taking showers, they are taken hostage by a German Captain and a German NCO who have been trapped behind American lines and are trying to get back to their own lines. The German Captain holds Saunders and Caje hostage while he frees Doc to get an ambulance to transport them out of the village and back to German territory. Doc becomes the central character in this episode as he goes about getting an ambulance for which he has no authorization. The German Captain continues to hold them all hostage as Doc uses the ambulance to get them out of the village and back near German territory. Instead of releasing his hostages at that point, however, we find the German Captain has one more chore in mind for the three GIs. Written by David Wile See less
