5.0 out of 5 stars Combat Series - Fan Favorites (50th Anniversary) December 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
I grew up watching the Combat series on TV and it is amazing how many years ahead of its time it was. It takes you down to the human level of combat during World War II - the street fighting, hand-to-hand combat, and stress involved in facing danger and death on the battlefield. The acting is superb - they just don't make these nitty gritty type actors anymore. These guys all know and practice their craft fantastically. They make the most of the technology of their day. A must for all military veterans and those who enjoy war movies. Great value for the money. Buy this series - you will not be disappointed. Hard to stop watching once you start. Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Combat is great--this item is a rip-off October 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
"Combat" is a great show and the episodes on this disc are the cream of the entire series and I loved them all. The problem is it turns out I already own these episodes because they provide no description of what the 20 episodes are and all of them have already been released. IF YOU OWN BEST OF THE SQUAD, BEST OF NEW REPLACEMENTS, BEST OF ESPIONAGE, BEST OF HANLEY, BEST OF SAUNDERS, you already have what's on this set like I do. The seller is ripping off the public by not listing the episodes so I'm giving fans of this series a heads up. What you basically get is the "Best of Episodes" in slim pack form which is great--if you don't already own these shows and ok if the seller told us that's what your getting--but they don't. If your gonna buy this set--buy it from importcds like I did--they rock as a seller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sarge and Hanley and the squad still the best! December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Where this set really shines is in showing how well Combat! portrayed regular guys just trying to survive the war. No glorious heros, in fact this set shows (in part) how much of a slog everyday life was -- punctuated by moments of sheer terror.

Why 4 stars and not 5? While I understand why the set wants to showcase some of the guest stars on one of the DVDs, it does so at the expense of leaving out several of Vic Morrow's, Rick Jason's and the other regulars best episodes.

Not to be missed: the episodes that Vic Morrow directed are motion-picture worthy.

My dad was once telling me about the TV shows he used to watch when he was younger and he
mention Combat and told me that he used to love it at a child. I went online and found it here and
he loved it. I think this would make a perfect fathers day gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent January 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
I started watching this show on METV on my cable network every night, and after a month, they took the show down to 1 day a week and it was on at 2 am, so I had to record it. My wife found this collection and got it for me for Christmas. Last week when our cable went out because of the -16 degree weather, I had something to watch. I am completely happy with this series of combat. The picture quality is excellent. As a matter of fact, I am in the processor of looking for more series that I can add to this collection. If you like the older black and white war series, I would recommend this series to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sgt. Saunders is my hero! October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
Sgt. Saunders is the greatest philosopher / warrior since Marcus Aurelius. He is a WW-II battlefield life coach who teaches us all with a few powerful words and many strong deeds how to face the world bravely and justly. He is the epitome of man as a natural leader.
COMBAT! is the best television show ever made. I watched it as a kid after school with my mother as she did the ironing. Its depiction of WW-II and the life of a squad and their leader is realistic and compelling. It is so much more than just a war show as the topics covered from one episode to the next run the gamut of human experience.

I got this for my younger brother. We used to stay up late at night and watch this when we were young, and it was a favorite show of ours. He was a Vic Marrow fan, and I was a Rick James fan. This is a great compilation of episodes, and at the price, well worth it.
