Schweyk, incarnation of the indestructible little man, now reemerges in Nazi-occupied Prague. He becomes involved with informers, patriots, the Gestapo, and the SS without ever betraying whether his stupidity is real or assumed. On the trail of a handsome dog that he has been sent to steal for an SS leader, Schweyk finds himself in a German army unit near Stalingard. In brief interludes Hitler appears to express his concern about the attitudes of the common man. In the end Schweyk and Hitler meet on the battlefield of Stalingrad, both quite lost.
