"I just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying your book. I think it has a nice spirit to it, and that may be due to the over-view you were able to come up with. Combat was a series that got made in spite of itself, but it was a pleasurable growing experience for all of us. So many years ago when all that went down, yet the kids in us are still laughing and scratching, as always, and it is good to be remembered."
The compendium is an armchair companion for viewing the classic television series Combat!, starring Vic Morrow as Sergeant Saunders. Combat!was television's longest-running World War II drama and honored the frontline U.S. infantryman.

A critical and popular success, Combat! lives on in syndication, where it continues to attract new fans.
