The Gallant Men (1962): S01E05 – One Moderately Peaceful Sunday


The Gallant Men is a 1962-1963 ABC Warner Bros. Television series which depicted an infantry company of American soldiers fighting their way through Italy in World War II.


John Dehner guest-stars as Captain Rauch, a German officer in command of a small enemy unit manning an observation post just outside a village that Benedict’s company has just captured. A series of skirmishes between Rauch’s men and a small American reconnaissance team results in the death of all except Rauch and Private Gibson. The resulting standoff pits Gibson, the Tennessee mountain boy, and Rauch, the rich but war-weary Bavarian gentleman, in a psychological battle of nerve and wit.
