Steve McQ's character is based on an OSS agent named Jerry Sage. Sage was captured behind the lines in North Africa and posed as a downed airman. He would have been shot as a spy if it hadn't worked. He has a very interesting biography. His story is in a book named after him "SAGE". It's a good read and gives a good account of life in the camp.
