Storyline

Lt. Hanley leads the squad on a mission to find and bring back a French collaborator named Duval. The American intelligence folks want to interrogate him for the valuable information he has concerning the Germans, but the French Underground want Duval to hang him from the Tree of Moray for his treasonous activities. Robert Loggia guest stars as Etienne, the leader of the local underground forces. As the episode progresses, Hanley and Etienne jockey back and forth to gain possession of Duval. First the underground has Duval, and then Hanley's men get him, but his fate is not determined until the end of the show. Written by David Wile

A Test of Willpower
28 August 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"The Tree of Moray" is a test of will power between Lieutenant Hanley and French underground leader Etienne (well played by Robert Loggia.)

Hanley, Caje, Kirby, and Littlejohn rendezvous with Rene (played by Robert Ellenstein) who is to bring them to Duval, another French underground leader who has valuable information that could shorten the war and save thousands of lives. Etienne and his underground fighters want Duval for a different reason and will not see eye to eye with Hanley. After a major setback, Hanley sticks to the game plan and comes up with an excellent idea.

Conflict and dialog between Hanley and Etienne are excellent, a testament to excellent screen writing by Anthony Spinner & Don Tait. Hanley displays good old American ingenuity in dealing with Etienne and shows why he wears the Lieutenant's bar. There's enough combat to sustain the episode but scenes are trite compared to other episodes. Caje lives up to the personification of Combat creator Robert Pirosh's idea for his character. Lieutenant Hanley does have his moments dealing with the Frenchmen and a few of his lines are very memorable particularly when Etienne gets smart with him.

The ending sequence is very memorable showing one last head butting match between Hanley & Etienne and finely portraying both the American and French spirits.
