Dog Tags is an original fiction.
1942. James Evans, a British Pilot, survives the crash of his plane in Nazi Germany. Stealing the uniform of an enemy soldier, he wakes up disfigured by a bomb in a German hospital. He has to survive in the shoes of Otto Siegmann: a German soldier, a husband, and a major figure in the German resistance against the regime.

A Series idea by Augustin Hardy
I came up with the premise of Dog Tags in 2012. Since then, with amazing support and feedback I've received, I kept on developing the story and the characters.
As ideas came along, it became clear that a series format was the most appropriate: the story and characters are calling for it. And now they have a full season of events ready for them.
Our main character is a pilot in the Royal Air Force. After crashing behind enemy lines, he steals an enemy uniform. After an allied bomb explodes next to him, he wakes up in the shoes of Otto Siegmann. Surrounded, he has very little chance to survive and fake this identity. Unless Lisa decided to save him.
She is the wife of Otto Siegmann, and a deeply humanist nurse. She also protects her husband's secret: Otto belongs to the German resistance against the Nazi Regime. Her husband's death not only means her grieving, but his work for the resistance dying with him.
Lisa can reveal the truth. Break the dog tags and turn in James.
Or save James. Save Otto's legacy. Save the resistance.
