About the Author

Robert R. Shandley is professor of film studies and German at Texas A&M University. He is the author of Runaway Romances: Hollywood's Postwar Tour of Europe and Rubble Films: German Cinema in the Shadow of the Third Reich.


Shandley makes the case that this critically disparaged forerunner of M*A*S*H deserves consideration as an allegorical statement about contemporaneous social and political issues, yet he reminds us that Hogan's Heroes also did 'active harm' to the historical project, to the cultural unpacking of Nazi atrocities decades earlier. A nuanced examination of the narrative protocols involved in making a seemingly ridiculous-and potentially shocking-premise palatable for the televiewing masses, this book is an indispensable contribution to the field."--David Scott Diffrient "author of M*A*S*H (Wayne State University Press, 2008) and co-editor of Screwball Television: Critical Perspectives on Gilmore Girls "
Shandley shows how Hogan's Heroes was both shaped by and exerted influence upon its cultural context, and how it provided social and political commentary while operating within generic constraints. Shandley's study is clearly organized and cogently argued."--David Sterritt "author of The Honeymooners (Wayne State University Press, 2009) "
