The Rat Patrol - For two glorious years in the late 1960s a series appeared on North American TV screens with a unique perspective on the second world war desert campaign. The featured patrol of two jeeps and four men, very loosely based on the highly effective Long Range Desert Group of the British army and Popsky's Private Army, battled weekly on TV against the German and Italian armies in the desert lands of North Africa. This was The Rat Patrol. Considerable familiarity with the Rat Patrol series and its characters are recommended for greatest understanding of the material in this website.
