sympathy with the feldwebel

Colonel Kramer stared aghast at the empty compound and the gaping prisoners' tunnel under the fence.

Feldwebel Steiner arrived at a run and saluted smartly.
"Feldwebel Steiner," rasped the Colonel in a businesslike voice, "all ze British prisoners have escaped. Report the matter at once to General Vortzel."
