My Grampa Remley was captured at the Battle of the Bulge and spent the 
rest of the war in a German prison camp. He HATED Hogan's Heroes- 
because it made light of something that was far from funny. The rest of 
his life, he would not eat soup unless is had so many crackers crushed 
into it that you could pretty much stand the spoon up in it. He 
remembered all too well the 'soup' in the camp that was basically water 
with maybe a bean floating in it here and there, if you were lucky.

He did like M*A*S*H though- he'd been a medic in WWII and said that it 
was actually pretty realistic, at least for the actual war stuff. HE 
never had a still in his tent though. :-)
