good story, so/so accents

The "escape" in this story involves a group of German soldiers who have figured out the futility of their campaign and desert into the desert on a fool's errand. The authenticity of this story holds up unlike some of the other stories in the series.
I'm not a fan of the narration.

Squabbling soldiers in the Sahara

I like some of these radio serials, but not this one. Nothing happens. Nazis argue as they trek through the desert with occasional sinister music in the background.
