Alas we have Combat - The Complete Series in an all encompassing 40 disc set. As a baby boomer whose dad proudly served his country contributing to both the European and Pacific theatres, I treasure this series as it told the stories of our brave men and women truly fighting for world peace. Like most returning GI's, my father, who was in the U.S. Army MAC, really never spoke about the things he saw during his time overseas. He is gone now as is many of his fellow "Greatest Generation" comrades. Although Combat! does not show the graphic carnage that comes with battle, it does show the daily emotional toll that war brought to the boots on the ground, as best as 1960's television could provide. It reminds us that the only good thing about war is its ending.

This series is truly a tribute all VFW's then and especially now.

"Combat!" was the most realistic, exciting and emotional show in television history. This gem about a squad of soldiers battling it out in WWII after D-Day did not glorify war, though there were lots and lots of actions scenes and firefights, but instead focused on the individual soldier and how he dealt with the war personally and as part of a brotherhood. Terrific writing, superb direction, believable characters and slam band action were the trademarks of this true TV classic. Big name directors and actors lined up to become part of the show which ran for 5 seasons and 152 episodes on ABC and has developed a huge following to this day. The series regulars were superb and believeable. Vic Morrow, Rick Jason, Jack Hogan, Piere Jalbert, Dick Peabody and Conlan Carter all shone on thier own unique ways. The characters of Saunders, Hanley, Kirby, Caje, Littlejohn and Doc have become etched in our minds forever. "Caje, take the point" was a phrase uttered quite often as myself and my childhood friends would act out the episode of Combat! we just watched and now as adults we see the show in all it's glory we may have overlooked as children. My only "complaint" about the show as in any show with recurring characters, we knew our heroes would not perish. We knew they would get the job done because there was another to do next week. As an adult, it lessens the tension a wee bit but who really cares? These are our heroes and we want them to succeed, not die and the characters and actors pull it off so well, it really becomes a mute point. I loved that the Germans actually spoke German. so what if we didn't know what they were saying? Whatever it was, it had to be bad and something that could hurt our beloved squad.Read more ›

All that I can say about this release is that it is spectacular. Lots of very good "Extra Content" accompany all of the episodes throughout it's five year run. My only complaint would be the packaging. The disks tend to not stay in place all of the time. This is the only reason that I gave it 4 out of 5. My true rating would be 4.75. I would also highly recommend the book "Combat! A Viewer's Companion to the WWII TV Series". Get it while you can. I believe it will not always be in print and the information that it contains is very enlightening.

Format: DVD
an absolute baby boomer favorite (I should know I was in LOVE with this show as a kid).... I saw it for 99 bucks today at Costco and THAT is why I am writing to let folks know that as of 11/7 it is already on the shelf and barely under a hundred bucks. I have the previous edition and from what I understand nothing (other than packaging) has changed....

This show followed a small group of men throughout WW2 and while the Lt Hadley (Rick Jason) was picked to be the star , in short order Sargent Saunders , played by Vic Morrow , stole the show out from under his pretty nose and became a hero to all us kids in the 60's. Shot on the back lot in Los Angeles and featuring directors like Richard Donner and the late great Robert Altman and guest stars galore from James Coburn to Lee Marvin... this collection is essential to my DVD collection. The first seasons were all black and white with the final in Color. In my opinion the series didn't yet run out of gas but was pulled for other reasons. There are some fun commentaries and interesting bonus features..

This doesn't feature action and gun play that compares to the CGI films and shows of today but it had enough for us kids and really fun and interesting characters in the platoon... and as guests with really gutsy and compelling episodes. While many of my childhood fantasy shows like The Wild Wild West haven't worn well with the years I enjoy this show very much. It isn't on the level of The Twilight Zone as an all time classic but its in the ball park for me. The prints are certainly good (better than some shows from the 80s in fact) and If you are nostalgic and wondering if you can dip back into your childhood and not be disappointed I'd say

Take the Hill!!!

I am a woman in my fifties and I used to watch Combat! when it first aired on TV. My whole family made fun of me then and now as well for liking "war shows." In the end, tho, I am right. This was a groundbreaking series for it's time. Nothing ever like it had ever been aired before and it is the model for all action programs that came after. No one could portray the character of Sgt. "Chip" Saunders except Vic Morrow. He brings mascilinity with sensetivity and moral concicousness to the role of a lifetime. I had a girlhood crush on the character/man, in fact, I think I still do. What a man!
