Synopsis for "Up Yours, Fritz!"

Oberst Flaschmann has secured legal custody over the Rifle Brigade as a angry Hauptman Venkschaft reads over the custody papers. Flaschmann enters the Rifle Brigade's cell and announces of their humane transfer to a Prisoner of War camp, right after being photograph for propaganda purpose. Unnoticed by Flaschmann and the other Nazi captors, Corporal Geezer pickpocket Flaschmann's pistol and discreetly passing it to Hugo Darcy. Darcy express his gratitude to Flaschmann's generosity before quickly gunning him down with his pistol. The Rifle Brigade in turn quickly subdues the guards and have Venkschaft taken hostage.

After arming themselves and forcing Venkschaft in returning Piper his bagpipes, the Brigade infiltrate the V-2 facility. Piper traumatizes the guards by playing his bagpipes and Hank the Yank blows up the facility before making their escape. Venkschaft is left behind to be discover by Wehrmacht soldiers. They then learn from a scientist that not only did the Rifle Brigade destroy every rocket fuel in the facility, but they had also stole the only copy of the rocket formula. Venkschaft makes contact with Adolf Hitler in regard to the situation. But as Hitler mispronounces Venkschaft's name as "Wankshaft" (which was repeatedly said), Venkschaft goes berserk and vehemently chastise Hitler before realizing his grave mistake. Hitler punish him by having his rank strip and posted to a penal battalion in the Eastern Front. After Hitler learns about the stolen rocket formula, he summons the infamous "Jager X".

The Rifle Brigade drives to the Berlin Airport and hijack a Heinkel He 111 bomber. Darcy contacts London and notify of their arrival. The Nazis refuses to send their fighters after them as they cannot risk losing the formula. Instead, they sent a Junkers carrying Jager X, a team of German superhuman brutes who are more notorious than their Nazi masters.

Jager X boards the hijacked plane and engages the Brigade. Despite their Nazi adversaries being resilient superhumans, the Brigade dispatches them one by one. The team are then escorted by the arrival of American P-51 Mustangs sent by Darcy's superior Jack Frigpipe. On the way to England they witness the start of the D-Day invasion. Darcy then makes radio contact to the entire Allied invasion fleet, in which he, the Brigade, and every Allied personnel sings "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" throughout every radio channel that is even heard by Hitler himself. After finishing their song, the Brigade finally reached England.
