Storyline

The year is 1918. During World War I, somewhere in France, it's the 49th day of continuous battle on the front lines. Lieutenant Martin Kalthrob doesn't want to be in the army anymore and asks his father, General Kalthrob, for a discharge. His father refuses but says he will transfer him to the rear if he leads a patrol to the German lines and fix the broken communication line. When he proves himself to be a coward, his father orders a court martial with penalty of death by firing squad. Written by grrlpunk

One of the best episodes.
24 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you never saw this episode, go and see it.This is my first review, because this episode deserves one review.Everyone should see this episode.

It for sure was one of the best tales of crypt episode ever, (the ONLY other one that was so good also was the one of the criminal handcuffed with the cop)......It was not a "supernatural" kind of episode, but, hey, war is also something terrifying.

This episode could easily be a movie, a really good war movie,something like Full Metal Jacket or Deer Hunter, i am not kidding.......

By the way, it also has Kirk Douglas and Dan Aykroyd.This is an episode that should became a movie, it is such a good story, and also kind of heartbreaking.Maybe horror fans don't find this one so great, but if you like horror and war movies, go and watch it, seriously, stop whatever you are doing and go watch, don't be a yellow( slang for a coward soldier on war according to this episode), and watch it.
