I kind of recognize Tim O'Connor I knew from Buck Rogers. Excellent actor not really given much attention anymore.
He plays Savage's friend, Jack Temple. He and his squad are supposed to lead a strike against the Germans who have a weapon in the works.
They get captured and are scheduled to be executed. Temple and his men try to leave enough clues to General Savage, so he can prepare a successful rescue and complete Temple's mission at the same time.
It's a well written episode. Nicely acted. Everyone one of these episode has fine acting. The suspense was great and action was dead on.
It has a realistic ending at the end. All in a classic episode.
