In the intricately woven plot, Colonel Ritter, assisted by Nazi partisan Martin Vogel, is assigned by the German government to make certain no one sabotages the Hindenburg on its way to New York.
Ritter suspects everyone on board, even his good friend, a German countess who is vehemently opposed to the Nazi regime.
Also on board are card sharks Emilio Pajetta and Major Napier, who spend the voyage trying to fleece gullible passengers.
Then there is Edward Douglas, a nervous German-American ad executive, as well as several suspicious crew members and the stoic cocaptainsPruss and Lehmann.
George C. Scott
