The time - World War III, the place - Germany. The Germans have a plan to destroy the British economy by flooding the country with forged ?5 notes. Private Schulz is coerced into organizing a gang of unwilling volunteers...
Fabulous cast, plot and hilarious script, featuring great performances from the leads; Ian Richardson as the incompetent SS officer, Michael Elphick as the luckless Private Schulz, constantly thwarted by fate as he tries unsuccessfully to get his hands on the forged money. Based on a true World War II story.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
