The German Tank

While heading to their base in a jeep with maps and important information, Pvt. Gavin, Sgt. Saunders and Captain Beggs hit a mine on the road. Saunders and Gavin use a German tank to transport their captain but they stumble upon German troops and need to lure them. Will they succeed to return to their base?

"The Hell Machine" is a highly entertaining episode of "Combat!", with Saunders showing his military skills to the claustrophobic Pvt. Gavin. The Germans are easily lured by the American Captain. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Máquina Infernal" ("The Hell Machine")
