  • General Savage is on way to coordinate an attack against the Germans when his vehicle is hit by enemy fire.

    Great episode features the guest appearance of the great Fritz Weaver as a German soldier.



    Savage is told of plans of an attack against the Germans. On his way to follow through on his plans, his vehicle gets smashed by enemy fire.



    When he comes to he goes to a neary home where a woman named Heath lives. They receive an unexpected visitor from a German soldier named Haff.



    The bulk of this episode is a chess game between Savage and Haff. It seems that Savage's meeting place is near the home of where he is. Haff, however,

    has a gun and is intent on using Heath and Savage, so he can escape the area safely.



    This is an interesting episode. The character of Jennifer Heath is an opportunist who doesn't mind helping the German kill Savage if it helps her live.



    The ending is rather comical but seeing as Lansing was the major star of the story, I knew this was an episode where he wouldn't be killed off. Still an entertaining episode.moreless
