A British unit holding a depot doesn't know that Allied units around them are retreating from a Nazi offensive, because the Brits' radio is broken. Sgt. Saunders' squad can't join the pullback, because Lt. Hanley orders Saunders' crew to march to the railhead in France, to let the Brits know they are being surrounded. Written by
The actors of Combat say this is one of the best shows they had done. As the US soldiers are forced as they are weary and tired by Hanley to tell the British Soldiers and their stubborn captain that they are being surrounded and warn them of the consequences.
At first Saunders wants to let his weary and tired troops rest but they won't let him be with green recruits(soldiers never that have seen combat at all). As that is what you call loyalty.
As they go to tell the UK soldiers, it is a clash of egos between the UK troops and Saunders and his men. As the captain orders them to stay around to help the UK soldiers hold their ground.
Saunders and his men must try to get out of the Captain's and his men's noses. But how? The captain is played by Leslié Howard's son btw!
