The Brave One Man Army
4 July 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When Lt. Hanley receives Rob Lawson as replacement, the squad learns that Lawson is known as one man army. They are ordered to take a barn, and while crossing a mined woods, they are attacked by a sniper. However Lawson sees the hidden sniper and alone he kills him. When they arrive at the barn, there are two German heavy machine gun nests. Lawson again goes alone and destroy the nests. Sgt. Saunders discuss with Lawson the danger of his attitudes for the squad and him but Lawson does not pay much attention. During the night, Kirby, Caje, Billy, Littlejohn and Doc have a serious conversation with Lawson telling that his actions would eventually kill them However Lawson tells that nobody will die because of him and that his fate is to die in the war. Then he explains why he believe that he will not return home.

"High Named Today" is an episode of "Combat!" with the story of a notorious lonely soldier known by his bravery and reckless behavior. Performed by Dean Stockwell, the screenplay is intriguing but the conclusion disappoints since there is no explanation of Lawson. Has his death wish gone? Some explanations are missing to be a great episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Sem Perspectiva" ("Without Perspective")
