Day 03 → Your favourite television programme

Combat! (1962-1967). WWII show, following a squad through Normandy. The show has better written and acted episodes than many WWII movies. The actors are all top notch, and a slew of great actors guested: Lee Marvin, Richard Basehart, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, John Cassavetes, Ramon Navarro, Gilbert Roland, Luise Rainer, and a host of others. Favorite episodes include "Far From the Brave," "One More for the Road," "A Gift of Hope," "The Long Way Home," "The Bridge at Chalons." Only tv show for which I maintain a fansite. A great show.

    I probably watched most if not all of the episodes of this series. I loved it. Recently acquired a Korean War vintage M1 Garand rifle and it made me remember this series.
