Great episode. I kept thinking he would get caught escaping but he used cunning strategy to make it. This is one of my top 10 episodes.

An American POW assumes the identity of a French volunteer worker on leave to escape from Nazi Germany on a train to occupied France. Unfortunately, he is accompanied by a troop of German soldiers and several Gestapo agents aboard...

An American prisoner of war escapes his German captors and tries to make his way to his underground contact. He meets a helpful Frenchman who goes out of his way to help him elude capture and instruct the nervous and unconfidend soldier in strategies and techniques for safety. He also meets a beautiful German girl who believes he is the Frenchman in his stolen passport, and has fallen in love with him.
