An Essential Collection for Baby Boomers!
Glenn M. Schoditsch | Richmond, Virginia USA | 11/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alas we have Combat - The Complete Series in an all encompassing 40 disc set. As a baby boomer whose dad proudly served his country contributing to both the European and Pacific theatres, I treasure this series as it told the stories of our brave men and women truly fighting for world peace. Like most returning GI's, my father, who was in the U.S. Army MAC, really never spoke about the things he saw during his time overseas. He is gone now as is many of his fellow "Greatest Generation" comrades. Although Combat! does not show the graphic carnage that comes with battle, it does show the daily emotional toll that war brought to the boots on the ground, as best as 1960's television could provide. It reminds us that the only good thing about war is its ending.

This series is truly a tribute all VFW's then and especially now.

I never realized how much I missed this show
Annie A. | St. Louis, MO. | 12/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this series in syndication. It ran before I was born.
I loved the stories and the characters. It was truly the "Happy" show about WWII.
I've heard it's been edited, but if you've only seen it in syndication you'd never know it. And in syndication the shows may be cut to add more commercials as well.
The commentary's and bloopers are wonderful as well you learn so much about the show from watching those as well (The Bloopers that Tom Lowell tells are a riot)
I only wish that they could find the"Missing Christmas episode" at ABC and release that as well.
Jo Davidmeyers has a wonderful website dedicated to Combat Check it out!

A Fitting Release for an Epic Series
D. Dunlap | USA | 01/22/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"All that I can say about this release is that it is spectacular. Lots of very good "Extra Content" accompany all of the episodes throughout it's five year run. My only complaint would be the packaging. The disks tend to not stay in place all of the time. This is the only reason that I gave it 4 out of 5. My true rating would be 4.75. I would also highly recommend the book "Combat! A Viewer's Companion to the WWII TV Series". Get it while you can. I believe it will not always be in print and the information that it contains is very enlightening."
Fantastic to finally have!

"I am a woman in my fifties and I used to watch Combat! when it first aired on TV. My whole family made fun of me then and now as well for liking "war shows." In the end, tho, I am right. This was a groundbreaking series for it's time. Nothing ever like it had ever been aired before and it is the model for all action programs that came after. No one could portray the character of Sgt. "Chip" Saunders except Vic Morrow. He brings mascilinity with sensetivity and moral concicousness to the role of a lifetime. I had a girlhood crush on the character/man, in fact, I think I still do. What a man!"
