A ragtag bunch of GIs fall in with each other in war-torn France, in 1944. They are led by a tough sergeant carrying blood to Allied lines. The problem is, one of them is a Nazi in disguise, and paranoia sets in. The main suspect is a solider with a lot of lip, and who just happens to speak fluent German. A sequence set at a French farmhouse, where the soldiers have stopped for a rest and a meal, is particularly gripping as the Nazi among the five gets brutal with the French family. Robert Goulet stars as the insolent, German-speaking soldier and Claude Akins is the tough sergeant. The episode is overloaded with stock footage, which is unfortunate, and a voice-over narration that isn't needed. Still, this is a solid episode, with twists at both the beginning and end. Lots of familiar faces fill out the supporting cast.
