When I found out that I could attain this TV series on DVD I looked all over for it. Finally I had to order ahead. For what this series told people at the time it was produces and aired (in the 60s) there isnt a show that comes near this era. I didnt like what the Nazis did during WW2 and this is almost as close to the truth as you can get, emotionally and physically, without the blasphamy or gore. people might say " you dont see any blood or guts" or " they dont use the military slang for different things" etc. But remember this IS a 60s TV show! I like to see the different A list actors playing cameo roles even changing sides in different episodes, doing all this before they were all big stars. to me the only difference between Combat and Band of Brothers is that Band of Brothers was a story of the 101st airborne unit, and true accounts of what happened during war, very fast paced. Combat was written by a brilliant group of people that carefully walked the edge of the line of truth and still having a emotional story with your side being the underdog, with the odds stacked heavily against them (just like the real war) and most of the time coming out victorious!Was this review helpful?
