Storyline

A jeep pulls up alongside Sunders and the squad while they are trudging up a road on foot. In the jeep is a German Colonel who is a prisoner, the two soldiers with him (a Lieutenant and a Corporal) are taking him to battalion for interrogation but need directions. But this is all a ruse and the men are Germans masquerading as Americans. When the jeep is overturned and the Colonel is wounded they are forced to go with Saunders and wait for an ambulance. Saunders begins to suspect the two but can he convince Hanley. Written by tomtrekp

Cross of Iron
12 June 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

James Coburn does a nice guest-star turn in this episode as Corp. Kanger, a German intelligence officer disguised as an American soldier helping escort a German prisoner back to division headquarters for questioning (in an attempt to find allied headquarters). Coburn's German is very good. He got another chance to demonstrate it in Sam Peckinpaugh's "Cross of Iron" many years later.

His portrayal of Kanger is layered. He is not some fanatical Nazi or uberman, he plays it like a professional soldier whose job it is to infiltrate the enemy--at all costs.

Morrow does a lot of "Lone Ranger" action in this. Sometimes you wonder why he doesn't take a little back up with him, but is strong yet subtle as usual. Jason as Handley once again baffles me as to why he would get second billing (or in the end credits, first billing!). I should get HIS agent!
