Storyline

Lt. Hanley must flush out a Nazi spy among the soldiers he's leading on a dangerous intelligence mission, before the German sabotages the plan. Hanley's thrust into the unfamiliar leadership role when the G-2 Captain heading the mission is accidentally shot by another infantry unit, who are hunting a deadly hauptmann who speaks perfect English. Because it's a top secret infiltration of a German planning HQ, none of the MI men know each other, nor does the novice Hanley know them. Another suspect wanders into the mission's rendezvous point, an Army minefield specialist claiming he's just escaped from the Heer. Written by David Stevens

Who Is the Impostor?
11 November 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Lt. Hanley, Caje. Kirby and Littlejohn are escorting Capt. Roberts from the Intelligence Sector in a secret mission through the woods. Out of the blue, the captain is hit by a friendly fire from soldiers that are hunting down a German prisoner that has escaped from them. Capt. Roberts assigns Lt. Hanley to accomplish his mission and explains to him that he must encounter three American specialists (locksmith, cartographer and infrared photographer) to get photos of top-secret maps in a German outpost. While heading to the house, they find a German officer dead but Kirby identifies and tells that he is indeed an American sergeant. Now Hanley needs to find who the impostor in the specialist team is. When he meets a minefield specialist, his doubt about the identity of the impostor increases. Who is the Impostor?

"The Impostor" is an engaging and tense episode of "Combat!". The storyline is well-written and keeps the mystery to the very end. It is funny to see Lt. Hanley ordering Littlejohn to protect the rear and calling him Peabody, the real name of the actor. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Impostor" ("The Impostor")
