Overview

What if General George S. Patton didn't die in a car accident, as history tells us, but at the hands of a paid assassin? That's the premise of Brass Target, another in a series of espionage thrillers, like The Eagle Has Landed, that speculates on the fates of real-life figures from World War II. Robert Vaughn, Ed Bishop, and Edward Herrmann are three Allied officers in occupied Germany who steal Nazi gold with the help of OSS officer Patrick McGoohan. Patton George Kennedy personally supervises the investigation of the theft, assisted by Major Joe DeLuca John Cassavetes. Soon, however, a professional assassin Max Von Sydow is on their trail, Patton is killed on the orders of his own staff, and only DeLuca and his lover Sophia Loren, who is also involved with the assassin, are left alive for the finale.
