TV Series
    (October 2, 1962-March 14, 1967)
    TV series about American GIs fighting their way across Europe during WWII
    Starred Rick Jason as Lt Handley and Vic Morrow as Sgt Saunders
    It ran five years longer than the real American involvement in the war in Europe.
    The actors used fake fiberglass helmets and wooden firearms because the real helmets and firearms were too heavy. Oh, the poor things.
    None of the show's regulars/semiregulars careers took off after the show's cancellation.
    There was no series finale episode.
    Although Morrow and Jason were technically costars to the point of flipping their credits around during the show's opening credits, Morrow was clearly the bigger star.
    Despite several minor nominations, neither the show nor its cast ever won a major award.
    It had some truly outstanding guest stars including; Tom Skeritt, Robert Duvall, Telly Savalas, Leonard Nimoy, and Ted Knight as a Nazi Officer(!).
    Other guests included; Fernando Lamas and William Smith.
    Given the censorship constraints of sixties television, the show did a very good job of portraying the violence and other horrors of war.
    The technical aspects of the war were generally correctly portrayed.
    Civilians and the effect of the war on them was honestly shown and German soldiers were usually portrayed as whole and many times as honorable human beings and not stereotypical Nazis.
