William Potts is a hapless, clumsy schoolteacher, who just happens to be an identical body double for a notorious German general. When the army is made aware of this uncanny resemblance to the German, who they're currently holding prisoner, they decide to drop the reluctant Mr. Potts behind enemy lines. His mission is to find and retrieve information on a secret weapon the Germans are planning to use. But whilst impersonating the general, William Potts manages to infiltrate a Hitler Youth college. He also manages to make a big impression on the students, who are being trained as spies and are learning how to fit into British society. Luckily Mr. Potts is on hand to give them lots of handy hints to aid the war effort. ... Britain's, that is.
