Leadership Lesson
5 June 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sgt. Saunders is summoned for a meeting with Lt. Hanley and leaves his squad under the command of Kirby. Soon they realize that they are under siege of German troops and the communication has breakdown. Kirby needs to take decisions but his fellow GI Maynard questions his decisions.

The tense "The Leader" is one of the best episode of "Combat!" with magnificent performance of Jack Hogan. The episode is well directed by Georg Fenady and transmits the uncomfortable sensation of fear and suspense the squad is feeling. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Líder" ("The Leader")
