Product Description

One of the television's most popular series, the groundbreaking Combat!! offers a gritty, unflinching look at American soldiers battling in Europe during World War II, confronting imposing odds and demonstrating remarkable levels of ingenuity and courage. Vic Morrow and Rick Jason head a stellar cast in the longest-running war series in history, featuring an incomparable list of guest stars from Hollywood's Golden Age as well as top directorial talent including Richard Donner and Robert Altman. Campaign 1 guest stars: Robert Culp, Dean Stockwell, Joan Hackett, Don Edmonds, Dan O'Herlihy, Victoria Vetri, Denise Alexander, Michael Murphy, Barbara Babcock. The Squad / Next in Command / The Chateau / Off Limits / No Time for Pity / Night Patrol / Survival / No Hallelujahs for Glory / The Quiet Warrior / Battle of the Roses / Hill 256 / The Sniper / One More for the Road / The Walking Wounded / High Named Today / No Trumpets, No Drums.

The further adventures of King Company's second platoon are highlighted in all their blazing action and dramatic impact in this four-disc set, which concludes Combat!'s 1962-63 debut season. King Two undergoes a few changes in episodes 17 through 32--Shecky Greene's Pvt. Braddock is absent from the platoon (Greene quit over pay issues) and Jack Hogan, whose Pvt. Kirby first appeared in "The Forgotten Front" (featured in the Combat! Season One: Campaign One boxed set) is now a featured cast member; Emmy nominee Conlon Carter, who would later join the cast as Doc in the third season, appears as an unnamed PVC in disc 3's "Hill 256." The 17 episodes featured here carry the men of King Two to the liberation of Paris, which concludes the season; afterwards, the series would no longer adhere to true chronological events, preferring instead to place the men in mostly unspecific dates and locations within France. The excellent performances of the main cast, led by Vic Morrow and Rick Jason, are well abetted by terrific guest stars, including Robert Culp, Dean Stockwell, and even future Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS director Don Edmonds, and direction by Golden Age TV vets such as Robert Altman, Ted Post, and Richard Donner.

The interview featurette "Memories of Combat!" that was featured on the Campaign One boxed set is absent from Campaign Two, as is episode commentary by Robert Altman and the production photo gallery, but this set features more commentary tracks from cast and crew members. Actor Tom Lowell (Pvt. Billy Nelson) again contributes a track, as do guest stars Joseph Campanella and Ben Cooper and directors Ted Post, Richard Donner, and Sutton Roley. Also returning is Jo Davidsmeyer, author of Combat! A Viewer's Guide to the WWII TV Series, who lists production trivia and continuity bloopers in the scene selection menu for each episode. As a stand-alone set or with Campaign One, this is solid entertainment for vintage TV fans. --Paul Gaita

Great series! but the DVD's are a bit strange... the episodes are grouped in order of "production" and NOT in the original air date/episode order. here are the episodes on "Campaign 2" in order:

- Episode 10: I Swear by Apollo (12/11/1962)
- Episode 30: Walking Wounded, The (04/30/1963)
- Episode 14: Medal, The (01/08/1963)
- Episode 16: Volunteer, The (01/22/1963)

- Episode 23: Survival (03/12/1963)
- Episode 21: No Time for Pity (02/26/1963)
- Episode 18: Next in Command (02/05/1963)
- Episode 22: Night Patrol (03/05/1963)

- Episode 20: Off Limits (02/19/1963)
- Episode 24: No Hallelujahs for Glory (03/19/1963)
- Episode 26: Battle of the Roses (04/02/1963)
- Episode 27: Hill 256 (04/09/1963)

- Episode 28: Sniper, The (04/16/1963)
- Episode 29: One More for the Road (04/23/1963)
- Episode 31: High Named Today (05/07/1963)
- Episode 32: No Trumpets, No Drums (05/14/1963)

you'll have to buy BOTH sets if you want to watch the series correctly - the way it was aired in the '60s.

If you are lucky to be old enough to remember "Combat", then I would say you are pretty lucky. This was one hell of a television show. I was 8 years old when the premiere episode came on and it was my father's favorite program. He was a WW2 veteran. This program premiered when writers knew how to write and they did not depend on fast cuts and digital images. The stories were very powerful and the acting was great! As a child , I was always waiting for the next episode and now I am happy to see these episodes on DVD. The main stars are dead now, Ric Jason and Vic Morrow and then Dick Peadbody. Also some of the production crew are now deceased. These people have certainly left a legacy!

Even though Combat! has aired on some cable stations and has been syndicated on broadcast television in a few markets, I had not seen the series since original broadcasts on ABC ended in 1967. So it was with great anticipation that I awaited the release of the series on DVD. The wait was worth it . . . Combat! is even better than I had remembered it to be. Like many youngsters who grew up in the 1950s/1960s, I was drawn to the show by its combat action sequences and now, as an adult, the human drama is of greater interest. The writing and acting in this series is top notch and I found the production values to be quite high for a television series from the early/mid 1960s. Yes, those French villages were really on the back lot of MGM Studios, but they sure looked authentic. And, although the final season of the series was filmed in color, the black and white film stock used for the first four seasons actually adds to the grittiness of the show.

Season 1, Campaign 2 contains 16 episodes and, like Season 1, Campaign 1, the episodes are shown in production order rather than the original broadcast order. Shecky Greene's Private Braddock is gone but Jack Hogan's better-known Private Kirby shows up in these episodes. The extras on Campaign 2 consist of six episode commentaries, and some anecdotal information on each episode provided by Jo Davidsmeyer who runs the Combat! web site. The commentaries are of variable quality. For example, actor Joseph Campanella, a guest star on the episode "The Medal," is a somewhat strange choice to provide commentary since his character is killed off during the first quarter of the episode. Campanella is affectionate when speaking about the show and his role, but he signs off abruptly, around the 25 minute mark of the episode.

The writer who states that these episodes were edited is dead wrong. Vic Morrow in an interview with the Social Security Administration remarked that the episodes were about 47 minutes long and the rest of the time is spent on commercials. So who are you going to believe. Vic Morrow , who directed and stared in the series or conjecture after the fact.

It's easy to slap 5 stars on a Combat review, but one must be careful and realize that this series was 5 seasons long with over 150 total episodes...In fact, if I could give this first season 3 1/2 stars I would....the show was trying to find its' bearings in this first season, and would face many bumps as directors and writers came and went....these are valuable episodes though in setting up what will become the best television series which covered the WWII theater....
Some of the Highlights:
Lost Sheep Lost Shepherd....Jeffery Hunter is the guest star as a priest who fell from grace and is now a tanker...when he blows up the church steeple, you cannot help but think of his role in King of Kings.
Forgotten Front...guest star Albert Paulsen (who recently passed away) portrays a very sympathetic German who is captured by Saunders...the writers had to add the final scene between Caje and Saunders because the producers did not like the final outcome of Paulsen's character...
Cat and Mouse...a very exciting and tense story with Albert Salmi as a Seargent equal to Saunders in grit and determination.
Reunion....what does one do, when you find out your long lost father is a collaborator for the Germans?
The Medal....Frank Gorshin reluctantly, then aggressively, takes credit for a heroic act that he didn't do...
No Time for of the many episodes which shows the war's effect on children....
The Sniper....German sniper picks off US soldiers in French town.
No Trumpets No Drums...Caje suffers through a period of angst after killing a little girl's father....
These epsisodes, and others are the high points of the first season...
