Introduction

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.

Outline

A German captain warns Saunders that “a reckless hunter who sets a trap often becomes its first victim” when Saunders uses him as bait to attract a deadly Nazi Colonel. The infantry NCO battles not only the wily captain, but a cynical, fellow Sergeant, on loan for his German capability. Sergeant Maider doubts Saunders’ every move, needling Saunders that his improvisation risks their lives, especially their wounded medic, solely for his own glory.
