Character Name List

Not quite sure if it's Schultz or Shultz? This is the place to find out. The following list has all of the major characters of Hogan's Heroes, plus some significant minor characters, with the correct spelling of their names and, for the military characters, their ranks in their own army and the American equivalents.


Name Nationality Rank US Equivalent
Baker, Richard American Sergeant Sergeant
Burkhalter, Albert German General General

Langenscheidt, Karl German Obergefreiter (?) Corporal

Schultz, Hans German Oberfeldwebel Staff Sergeant

Note: The show played fast and loose with a lot of the details. For instance, Major Hochstetter is seen wearing the insignia of a Standartenführer (colonel). General Burkhalter has the right insignia, but his uniform is Heer (Army) not Luftwaffe (Air Force). Also note that there is not an exact correlation between German and American ranks for enlisted men and generals.
