We are of course trying to get the better of this situation with all the resources available to us . . . But we are poor folk and have only limited resources and potentialities with which to oppose the enemy.'' The fuel situation, already critical, was continuing to deteriorate.

[[Wikipedia:World War II|World War II]]: {{#expr: {{formatnum:{{/offset}}}} + 71}} years ago (March 25, [[Wikipedia:1945|1945]]), [[Wikipedia:Joseph Goebbels|Joseph Goebbels]] commented about the air war: ''It is cheering that we are now recording 40-50 enemy aircraft shot down daily. This is due to our new fighters; but they are only in action in such small numbers that they cannot really register any decisive success.'' Goebbels noted the effects of Allied air action on transport hubs. ''Rail traffic is totally at a standstill. There are districts in which not a single train runs; where trains do run they can do so only at night and at a snail's pace.''

[[Wikipedia:World War II|World War II]]: {{#expr: {{formatnum:{{/offset}}}} + 71}} years ago (March 22, [[Wikipedia:1945|1945]]), forces of [[Wikipedia:George S. Patton|Patton's]] [[Wikipedia:US Third Army|Third Army]] crossed the [[Wikipedia:Rhine River|Rhine River]] at [[Wikipedia:Oppenheim|Oppenheim]]. They subdued weak German opposition and advanced rapidly. On March 23, [[Wikipedia:Bernard Montgomery|Montgomery]] sent many thousands of troops across the Rhine near [[Wikipedia:Wesel|Wesel]]. They also met little German resistance, but the cautious Montgomery declined to allow a fast advance. Nevertheless, the [[Wikipedia:Nazi|Nazi]] leaders knew that the Western Front situation, hitherto full of serious problems, had become much worse. On March 24 [[Wikipedia:Joseph Goebbels|Joseph Goebbels]] wrote, ''The situation in the West has entered an extraordinarily critical, ostensibly almost deadly phase . . . the enemy now has three extraordinarily dangerous bridgeheads east of the Rhine and . . . he will undoubtedly do his utmost to surround the [[Wikipedia:Ruhr|Ruhr]] . . .'' Air raids on [[Wikipedia:Berlin|Berlin]] targeted industrial areas. [[Wikipedia:Joseph Goebbels|Goebbels]]: ''We now hardly know where our heavy weapons can be produced.''

[[Wikipedia:World War II|World War II]]: {{#expr: {{formatnum:{{/offset}}}} + 71}} years ago (March 18, [[Wikipedia:1945|1945]]), [[Wikipedia:Joseph Goebbels|Joseph Goebbels]] noted that the collapse of the Remagen bridge (on the 17th, ten days after American soldiers captured it) came too late to stop the enemy. ''It would be splendid if we could succeed in eliminating the Linz bridgehead. At present, however, the Americans are in such strength there that it is they not us who are making gains of ground.'' The [[Wikipedia:Saar|Saar]] was in a critical state. ''Here the Americans are trying to take us in rear and roll up the [[Wikipedia: Siegfried Line|Siegfried Line]] from behind, exactly as we did to the [[Wikipedia: Maginot Line|Maginot Line]] during the offensive in the West in 1940. It is clear that we must put in all our forces to stop this attempt, but it is very questionable whether we can succeed . . . In addition to all this at midday there was a heavy air raid on [[Wikipedia:Berlin|the capital]] producing all sorts of trouble. The Americans attacked with 1300 bombers escorted by 700 fighters and we had only 28 new [[Wikipedia:Messerschmitt Me262|Me262s]] with which to oppose them and they can stay in the air for only half to three-quarters of an hour . . .

[[Wikipedia:Operation Spring Awakening|Our offensive there]] seems not to be going to work. Our divisions have been halted in front of Soviet defensive positions and are now facing serious counterattacks. One would think one was dealing with the devil. None of our military operations, however well prepared, have been successful recently.''

''In Germany, thank God, we have already done a fairly complete job. I trust that the world will take its cue from this.'' Goebbels also railed against the [[Wikipedia:Luftwaffe|Luftwaffe]] again: . . . ''it is in no way capable of doing its job. When I call to mind that the amount of petrol available to the Luftwaffe has fallen from 193,000 tons to 8000, then I realize what can be expected of the Luftwaffe and what cannot. What use is all this mass output of new fighters when we have neither the petrol nor the crews to put them into action?''

[[Wikipedia:World War II|World War II]]: {{#expr: {{formatnum:{{/offset}}}} + 71}} years ago (March 10, [[Wikipedia:1945|1945]]), [[Wikipedia:Joseph Goebbels|Joseph Goebbels]] commented on the [[Wikipedia:Luftwaffe|Luftwaffe]] as follows: ''... the proposal has been made that the entire Luftwaffe should be abolished . . . This would be the most sensible solution since in its present state the Luftwaffe is not worth a row of beans. It consists merely of one enormous corruption factory.'' The Remagen bridgehead induced this prophetic dictation: ''. . . if the Americans continue to hold out on the right bank of the Rhine, they have a base for a further advance and from the small beginning of a bridgehead such as we now see, a running sore will develop . . . the poison from which will soon spread to the Reich's vitals.''

[[Wikipedia:World War II|World War II]]: {{#expr: {{formatnum:{{/offset}}}} + 71}} years ago (March 9, [[Wikipedia:1945|1945]]) the [[Wikipedia:OKW|OKW]] presented its first written response to the crossing of the [[Wikipedia:Rhine River|Rhine]] at [[Wikipedia:Remagen|Remagen]]: ''Some enemy armour from the Ahrweiler area reached the east bank of the Rhine across the Remagen bridge. The enemy force consisted of an armoured detachment and three infantry battalions. The enemy advance was sealed off and held at Linz. Counter-measures were initiated at once. The bridge was attacked by dive-bombers during the night and damaged; it is possible, however, that it can still be used.'' [[Wikipedia:Joseph Goebbels|Joseph Goebbels]] was worried to fury: ''It is quite devastating that the Americans should have succeeded in capturing the Rhine bridge at Remagen intact and forming a bridgehead on the right bank of the Rhine . . . On the enemy side of course people are overjoyed at the news. They act as if they already held the whole right bank of the Rhine. In fact it is a raving scandal that the Remagen bridge was not blown in good time. The Americans were able to capture it without a fight.''

Welcome to the Hogan's Heroes Wiki, a database based on the popular CBS-TV sitcom series that anyone can edit!

Hogans Heroes.jpg ShultzHoganKlink.jpg

The Hogan's Heroes Wiki is a collaborative project to create the most definitive, accurate, and
accessible encyclopedia and reference database for everything related to Hogan's Heroes.

In this wiki, started on November 19, 2005, we are currently working on 1,227 articles.


Hogan's Heroes is a television sitcom that ran on the CBS television network from 1965 to 1971. Starring Bob Crane as Colonel Hogan, the show was set at Stalag 13, a German prisoner-of-war camp for Western Allied prisoners during World War II. In the plot, Stalag 13 was a "Luft Stalag", located near the village of Hammelburg, run by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) for Allied Air Force personnel.

But underneath that camp, the POWs had plans of their own.... and Schultz still saw nothing!

Hogan's Heroes / WWI Historcial News

World War II: 81 years ago (May 8, 1945) saw the formal end of war in Europe with the near-midnight surrender of German armed forces at a ceremony in the seat of the Soviet Military Administration in Berlin. May 8 has been called V-E Day across western Europe ever since. In zones east of Berlin midnight had already passed at the time of surrender, so Russia and parts of eastern Europe celebrate Victory Day every May 9.


World War II: 81 years ago (April 30, 1945), Adolf Hitler fatally shot himself in his Berlin bunker. His new wife Eva Braun also died, having poisoned herself. News of Hitler's death would be broadcast from Radio Hamburg the following day.


Hogan's Heroes: 55 years ago (April 4, 1971), Rockets or Romance, the twenty-fourth and last episode of the sixth and final season of Hogan's Heroes, first appeared on CBS.


World War II: 81 years ago (March 27, 1945), Patton's task force arrived at the vicinity of the real Stalag 13 near Hammelburg and attacked the officers' compound. Their attempt to free Patton's son-in-law left the man wounded and immobile. The task force liberated some POWs but retreated in failure with many members captured or killed. But the success of Allied forces in general and Patton's in particular continued to worry Goebbels: The British and especially the Americans are at present pursuing really wide-ranging plans on the Western Front; this applies particularly to General Patton who has been conspicuous for his series of audacious advances ever since the start of the offensive and who is now well under way. He is letting it be known that practically nowhere is he meeting any firm resistance and consequently can drive around in our country unimpeded. This is in fact the case. only 28 new Me262s with which to oppose them and they can stay in the air for only half to three-quarters of an hour . . . Schaub is sent over by the Fuhrer to get the news. For his benefit I add a generous helping of criticism of the Luftwaffe and Goring.

Hold That Tiger

Hold That Tiger.jpg
Series: Hogan's Heroes
Episode Title: Hold That Tiger
Season: One
Episode: Two
Original Air Date: September 24, 1965

Hold That Tiger is the second episode of the Hogan's Heroes TV show's first season. It was originally aired on September 24, 1965.

Plot Details

Colonel Klink boasts to Hogan and his men during an evening roll call that Germany is developing some new and powerful weapons, including the new Tiger tank, which he claims would help to shorten the war, thus leading to a German victory. After roll call is over, Hogan quickly asks Klink if the tanks of the aforementioned Panzer Division are west of the camp; Klink tells him no, before Hogan goes into his barracks. Klink's boast leads Hogan and his men to start coming up with an elaborate scheme so that they can get their hands on one of the new Tiger tanks, from which they would make blueprints that they would then send over to London. Eventually, Hogan comes up with a plan.

The prisoners are soon working on an inside wall of Barracks 2, when Schultz appears. After he asks what is going on, Hogan tells Schultz that they are going to put in a picture window that would give the prisoners a sweeping view of the delousing station. A Waffen-SS officer, actually Newkirk in disguise, then appears, addressing Schultz. A panicking Schultz then calms down after seeing that it is Newkirk, but as he sees him leave with LeBeau to have the uniform worked on a bit more, Schultz becomes curious and asks Hogan why Newkirk is wearing the uniform. After being told the reason why by Hogan, a now very panicky Schultz leaves. Later Hogan enters Klink's office to protest to Klink about his men being interrogated by a Gestapo officer. Corporal Langenscheidt soon appears, after knocking on Klink's door several times, to inform Klink that a Gestapo officer wants to leave the camp, but he can't since there doesn't seem to be any record of him actually coming in. Klink tells the Senior Lance Corporal to let the Gestapo officer go, having no clue that it is actually Newkirk in disguise. Read more...
