Combat! (1964): S02E26 – What Are the Bugles Blowin For?, Part 02


Combat! is an American television drama series that originally aired on ABC from 1962 until 1967. The exclamation point in Combat! was depicted on-screen as a stylised bayonet. The show covered the grim lives of a squad of American soldiers fighting the Germans in France during World War II.


A British captain refuses Allied orders to retreat, delivered by Sergeant Saunders. Instead, Captain Johns commands Sergeant Saunders’ battle-fatigued US squad to dig in at the besieged railhead and help repulse a German advance. Saunders fears it is suicide for all, but the imperial Captain Johns, a Sandowner and son of a general, insists they can hold the depot against a Nazi offensive.
