In the first episode of a two-part story, Lt. Hanley (Rick Jason) and his men are ordered to undertake the near-impossible task of knocking out two German pillboxes located on a steep hill. The squad will have no cover and no support, and because of the treacherous uphill climb they will be armed only with the lightest of artillery. The situation worsens when Sgt. Saunders (Vic Morrow) is seriously wounded and a valuable tank is lost in the fierce fighting--prompting Hanley to consider defying his orders and pulling out. This episode was stunningly directed by series star Vic Morrow.
