General Tanz is a high-ranking German officer during World War II who commands several tank divisions, and who happens to be an obsessive-compulsive sexual degenerate with a nasty habit of murdering prostitutes in lieu of paying them. His latest murder, committed in Paris prior to the Allied invasion, he has framed on his driver, Corporal Hartmann, who he (foolishly) allowed to escape and go on the run.
Roughly twenty years after the war, Tanz has been released from prison following a twenty-year sentence for war crimes, and is unaware that in the meantime Inspector Morand has been boning up on the old murders, because the original investigator, Colonel Grau of German Intelligence, who Tanz killed, was Morand's friend.
With the help of Corporal Hartmann, Morand is able to implicate all the murders on Tanz, and comes to confront him at a get-together reunion of the ex-general's old unit.
Realizing he's been caught, Tanz calmly requests that a subordinate give him his pistol (yes apparently the guys came armed to the military reunion) and retires to the dining room. A moment later, a shot rings out. Morand, Hartmann and the others rush in to find Tanz laying dead on the banquet table underneath the banner for his unit.
