Sergeant, take some of Overkonstablens

wounds. Disinfect and connect it.

I go over and find out

which way to go.

Am I going to die?

I will surely not die?

They have been injured in the elbow,

Overkonstabel. In the elbow.


Why he flew far? We said

all he had to turn back.

It should not hang them in.

Mr. Lieutenant? Lieutenant!


- Schopis!

- I'm down here!

During the snow!

What happened?

I fell down there.

That was what happened.


- Joseph, your book.

- What have you got?

I waited for six hours

at Alexanderplatz.

Finally, Hitler came by.

It's his autograph.

Biscuits, chocolate, sausage,

sauerkraut and beer.

- Beer?

- You never know, Mr. Lieutenant.

Yes. You are right.

What do we do now?

We march to the coast,

find our army and go to war again.

Hauk fell for his country.

"In time of need

raises as heroes -

- Filled with contempt for death,

determination and a cool head. "

"But ..."

"But there must be an external

incident to call genius. "

"Fate auction,

forcing one man to their knees -

- Makes sudden another

for a determined completely. "

It is as if Hitler speaks to me.

Speaking to us.

Do you understand it?

We were alone against three enemy planes,

and we survived.

And we got shot one of them. It is

Minus 20 degrees, and we do not freeze.

Turn off the light.

We use the battery.

We can not just go

in a random direction.



- The sled is too heavy!

- Loosen the belt.

- What?

- Loosen the belt!


Do we have water?

Strunk, turn up the oven.

Norwegians are thorough people.


There are only two.

Can you hear it?

I hate this place.

I hereby declare

this sh*t hole of German.

- Stop!

- Who's there?

Stop! Stand!



Who are you?

- A British officer and a soldier.

- What are you doing here?

Our plane was shot down

about three miles from here.

- And who are you?

- We are German pilots.

We were also shot down.

So ...

- Come on.

- Mr. Lieutenant?

Thank you.

It is probably not possible,

that you can get a cup of tea?

Lieutenant Horst Schopis.

Sergeant Wolfgang Strunk

and Constable Joseph Schwartz.

I'm Captain Davenport,

and this is my gunner Smith.

- Where slept in the night?

- In the plane.

- And you?

- In a snow cave.

This is probably a hunting lodge.

There is room for all of us.

- Smith and I can sleep over here.

- No.

- It is our beds.

- Your beds?

We're all just arrived.

How can it be your beds?

It is best, I sleep over there. We were

friendly to invite you inside.

Yes, but this

is a Norwegian cabin.

Who do you think the owners any

will share it with? You or me?

In a German-occupied country, it's me.

And sooner or later

this is German.

So go over there and sit.

I am a British officer, and I have

not to heed to sound your orders.

It's five o'clock, and you are now

officially the Third Reich prisoners.

I order you to go over.

- To hell with the Third Reich.

- Shut up!

- You say never again.

- It's an unusual situation.

- We must work together.

- Yes, we must.

But I must make it our prisoners.

Lieutenant, we should not shoot them?

- No.

- In English, please.

- Why not?

- We are not wild Hottentots.

- In English.

- Quiet.
