Plot Overview

Hogan's latest plan to disrupt the German war effort is to destroy a cannon factory. He, along with LeBeau, Newkirk and Carter, will infiltrate and sabotage the gun cannons that a man name Spears is producing. They will take the places of four other men, each a factory worker. They don the mens ID's and manage to slip past Schultz, who is checking every workers ID. They get to work in sabotaging the gun cannons by making each size of the cannon smaller than usual. Carter, checking out the factory, discovers some explosives and will later attach them to the cannons. By the end of the day's shift, when the factory whistle blows, the cannons, and probably the factory, will explode.
