The Gallant Men (1963): S01E25 – The Crucible


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.


A German soldier, apparently disillusioned with the Nazi cause, is accidentally wounded while attempting to voluntarily surrender to Benedict’s outfit. However, after the prisoner is successfully treated in an Army mobile hospital, he is interrogated by Captain Benedict as to the enemy’s positions. The prisoner’s responses elicit great doubt as to the authenticity of his disenchantment with Nazism; and Benedict must decide for himself whether the German is lying or telling the truth before reporting his story to G-2 Intelligence.
