In the conclusion of a two-part story, Hanley (Rick Jason) has lost ten men in two futile uphill assaults on a pair of well-fortified German pillboxes--and making matters worse, Saunders (Vic Morrow) has been severely wounded and is unable to provide backup. After a third unsuccessful attack upon the enemy stronghold, Hanley tells his superiors that the squad refuses to proceed any further, only to be ordered to keep fighting to the last man. In the final analysis, the survival of King Company depends upon the ingenuity of privates Kirby (Jack Hogan) and Caje (Pierre Jalbert). This episode was directed by series star Vic Morrow, whose vivid, hand-held camerawork rivals anything ever done by such filmmakers as Samuel Fuller and Steven Spielberg.
