Lt. Hanley, Kirby, Littlejohn, Szigeti and Doc are under siege of a German attack; however, a group of Greek soldiers commanded by Colonel Kapsalis in three jeeps with machine guns save them. Lt. Hanley thanks and explains that they have located a German fuel depot and now they must return to their lines with his map so that the artillery fire the place and Szigeti that is seriously wounded. In principle the Colonel agrees, but he does not head to the American lines. Szigeti dies and the Colonel orders Lt. Hanley and his squad to join his men to attack the German depot that is heavily protected. Lt. Hanley is forced to follow the order and soon he learns that the village of Colonel Kapsalis was slaughtered by the Germans and the officer seeks revenge. What will happen to them?
"Vendetta" is a full of action episode of "Combat!", with the participation of the guest star Telly Savalas in the role of a bold colonel that wants to revenge his family and friends murdered by the Germans in suicidal missions. The problem is exactly the excellent action scenes where the Germans look like imbeciles missing the moving targets despite the heavy guns they have while the Allied easily hits the targets with precise shots despite the jeeps moving fast. And nobody hits the searchlights during the night raid. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Vendetta"
