Episode Summary

EDIT
What Are the Bugles Blowin' For? (2)
AIRED:
Saunders and his men are still stuck with a surrounded British company. The British Captain (Ronald Howard) is questioned by one of his own wounded men (Pvt. Giles - James Forest) as to why they haven't retreated to safety and aid. Giles dies. The Captain then tells a German lieutenant (Erik Holland) at a parley (after being told he is surrounded by overwhelming numbers) that he intends to kill every German in the sector. A vicious series of firefights erupts, during which the Capt. is wounded. Saunders and his men basically save the company in the first, wild firefight. The Capt., after conferring with his own Sgt. Rawlings (John Alderson), gives Saunders permission to withdraw. Saunders and the unit decide to stay. After an overnight barrage, they beat back a final, uncoordinated German assault at daybreak. The German lieutenant then comes forward to surrender himself and his troops to the Capt. Lt. Hanley shows up with an American relief column; the Germans were cut off themselves. The Capt. dies. The little French kid (Philippe Chapelle) finds his sister's killer, now dead, among the German attackers.moreless
