From the Back Cover
The lives of a regiment and the success of the desert war rest on the shoulders of Indiana Jones in this never-before-seen action adventure film. Receiving orders to assist the British in an attack on the ancient Middle Eastern desert town of Beersheba, Indy goes undercover with a beautiful lady spy. Relying on his wits and her tantalizing skill at belly dancing, the daring duo works desperately to defuse the explosives placed in the city's vital water wells by the occupying Turks. The story culminates in a spectacular cavalry charge by the gallant soldiers of the Australian Lighthorsemen Regiment whose very survival hinges on the success of Indy's mission.

The plot is deceptively simple: Indy and his colleagues need to take a town in the desert. Liberated by the straightforwardness of the plot, the writers of the episode thus had ample opportunity to work on characters, suspense, drama, and comedy to produce a film that could easily have been a successful theatrical release. As in other episodes of the television series, there are associations with historical figures, but they don't overburden the plot. In particular, "Ned" Lawrence (of Arabia) has a logical presence in Indy's life--thanks to Indy's father's archaeological career. Not only that, but the inclusion of this historical figure actually has an impact on the development of Indy's character. His reference to making amends with the elder Jones is an extremely welcome inclusion, making us hungry for similar moments elsewhere in the series.
We can only hope that the episodes currently being filmed will continue in the vein of this recent series entrant.
