Storyline

In desperate need of replacements, the squad is finally given three new men. However, the new troops are not quite what Saunders was expecting--one is an overage, overweight former cook, another is an arrogant radio announcer who wants nothing else than to get back to his former cushy job in London, and the third was a ballet dancer before he got drafted--and none of them have any combat experience whatsoever.
