Based on Fact.
This drama was indeed based on a true story but certainly did get the "Hollywood" Treatment in the making! The lady in question was actually English, not American.

The drama is full of errors too especially in the German uniforms and many of the action scenes are simply pure fiction. It is a great pity that not more attention to detail was used when making this drama as a lot of trouble was undertaken in relicating the POW camp including flying ex POWS who were present at the time out to Germany to help ensure the camp itself was accurate!

The book is a far more accurate account of what actually did happen and it is a pity that the author's account was not better replicated in the production of Jenny's war.
