Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Saunders (Vic Morrow) and the squad are assigned to capture a heavily guarded enemy bridge. Threatening to sabotage the mission from the get-go is Pvt. Mick Haler (guest star Nick Adams), an obnoxious wisecracker who'll do anything to stay alive long enough to resume his civilian career as a jazz drummer. The other men wonder if Haler is merely another griper, or a craven coward who will let them down when they need him most. By episode's end, most of the survivors are asking themselves the same question that Haler had posed at the beginning: Is all the bloodshed really worth it?
