Theater of War is a gen series of four Hogan's Heroes novels.

From an ad in The New Monthly: "A six-act series set in the Hogan's Heroes universe. Warning! These are not comedies. They treat the implausible premise of HH as a reality, a reality set in the grim days of late 1944 to the end of the war and beyond. It may be a bit jarring to think of HH in serious tones, but there is a method to my madness..."
