Derek de Lint plays "Dr. Thost" who gets Major John Dodge out of the Gestapo's prison and enables him to cross into Switzerland to get to his consulate.

Description from the back of the video box ( Vidmark):

"Major John Dodge (Christopher Reeve) organizes and leads his men on a daring escape under extremely difficult conditions. Seventy-five men bust out, but fifty are captured, and most are savagely murdered by a maniacal Death Squad.

"Having fled to England, Dodge and the survivors plan a daring return to Germany. Utilizing their unique skills and expertise they form a specialized task force and infilitrate the hierarchy of those responsible for these heinous crimes. Their objective is the brutal revenge of those guilty (especially Burchardt) for the execution style murder of his any cost."
