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.
During a skirmish with German forces, Captain Benedict is seriously wounded. After treatment, he is ordered back to Naples for medical and psychological observation. While there, he is offered a transfer from the front lines to an American unit engaged in re-building villages in war-torn southern Italy. Thus, Benedict must make the difficult choice to leave the men he has led from the beginning of the invasion, or refuse a safe desk in order to return to the fighting.
