Combat!

Show Summary

This WWII show centered on the lives of the men from King Company. For 5 1/2 years the men of King Co. faced the enemy starting with the landing on Omaha Beach-D Day June 6, 1944. You see how they evolved from a squad of men to a family.

  • Hey Sarge....

    This was a very good show. The main characters went thru some combat training to ensure realism and they hit the mark. This show was fabulous and I watch it still on MEtv.

    The Untouchables, The Man From UNCLE, I Spy, Garrison's Gorillas, The Rat Patrol, and of course-Combat! The early-mid 1960's were a television dreamland for ten year old boys. Political correctness had yet to rear its prissy head (there were parental protests over the violence, but eh-who cared?). The only vampires were on The Munsters or Dark Shadows.

    I remember Vic Morrow playing Sgt. Saunders as a very low-key character. He always seemed on the edge of exhaustion (fair enough). Each episode would highlight a different squad member, and there were even sympathetic war-weary Germans. I was almost afraid to watch this again, fearing it wouldn't hold up-WRONG.

    Keep in mind this was only twenty years after WWII, so a lot of the equipment/personnel were authentic; and looking back now, I imagine the series was aimed at veterans, so they had to keep it realistic. Just the best.moreless

    This show is one of the greatest shows of all time. It should be on everyday at a normal time so all can watch and get to know Saunders and squad. I would rather watch Combat! 10 times a day than watch some of the crap, yes I said crap, they have on now.
