Which way to the war end credits

Which Way to the War is an intended British television sitcom written by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, which was discontinued after a one-off broadcast pilot on 19 August 1994. It was also Croft and Lloyd's only ITV sitcom and Croft's last World War II sitcom.



In the Western Desert of World War Two, a party of British "Desert Rats" soldiers and a party of Australian soldiers are holed up in a remote building, when an ambulance of Italian "nurses" arrive. The pilot was badly received and was never brought back for or developed into a series despite the success David Croft had with Dad's Army, It Ain't Half Hot Mum and 'Allo 'Allo!.
