Trivia

Sgt. Saunders was referred to as "Chip" several times over the course of the series. While Chip is a common nickname for Charles he is never referred to as Charles, Chuck or Charlie. Lt. Hanley's first name Gill is only used once. Here again Gill is usually short for Gilbert. See more »

Great show for the times!
11 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was growing up I never missed this show. For the time it was a very realistic show with many of the themes. A french boy who is befriended by a German Soldier, only later in the episode to shoot him. Or when Saunders suffers from shell shock and carries a dead German soldier thinking it is his brother. The show was on longer than the actual war itself, but it never seemed to be boring because it was well written. The cast was excellent and portrayed many of the horrible aspects of war to kids of my age, who were also reading Sgt Rock comic books at he time. I enjoyed this show much more than the Gallant Men, which even at the time, I could tell was not written or produced as well as Combat.
