"The Partisan" is a dichotomous tale portraying American nerve &
bravery and the inner strength of a beautiful woman.
After Caje & Saunders are wounded, Caje is captured by the Germans while The Sarge makes his way to Babette's (excellently played by Claudine Longet) house. She's living with Michel (excellently played by Robert Duvall) who has a past. Claiming to be a French resistance fighter, Michel finally raises eyebrows when Caje comes on the scene.
Ed Waters wrote a fine screenplay which is very realistic and forthright portraying the power of love. Every time Michel fails, the gorgeous Babette nudges him in the right direction. Vic Morrow is vintage Chip Saunders showing the usual nerve, persistence, & bravery we've all come to know. Saunders' dialog with Michel is outstanding at times; 2 great actors having at it!
Michael Caffey directed this excellent episode in which the viewing audience is treated to authentic German 88 millimeter canon fire. Excellent close-up shots throughout bring out the emotional side of the story.
And favorite German Paul Busch is featured as the ranking German officer. Ironically, he's also the German radio man in the beginning of the episode. Although his head is turned from view, the voice is unmistakable.

As we did not see how the Combat aka King's Company got out of France
and tie up loose ends.
A pre-stardom Robert Duvall stars as a drifter who poses as a Frenchman to get out of the Army. Who falls in love with a blind French girl. As Caje is injured and that Saunders is also.
As Saunders is nursed back to help first, Caje also is and confides in his Sgt the real truth about Duvall. About him speaking French but speaking it with an accent. An American one that is.
Until Saunders and Caje find out that their suspicions are true, Duvall gets the chance to redeem himself. As the Krauts are closing in on Caje, Saunders, Duvall's character, and Claudine Longet who plays his girlfriend.
Really hate it that they did not tie up lose ends. As the show was canceled afterwords. And we did not get to see how the King's Company gotten out of France alive. Pity! Great series!
