Amazon is currently running a deal on Combat!: The Complete Series, which was the ABC-TV series that originally ran during the mid 1960s and focused on a squad battalion of American soldiers fighting the Germans during World War II, and the price that Amazon is offering for the package makes this deal irresistible.
The list priced at $299.99, but Amazon is giving buyers of this 40-disc DVD set for only $114.99, an absolutely unreal deal for sure. The deal runs out at the end of the day on Saturday, May 26, while supplies last.
Combat! ran from 1962 to 1967 and starred the late Vic Morrow, best remembered as one of the figures who died in the tragic Twilight Zone: The Movie accident in 1982. Here, he leads a cast of alpha males, such as Rick Jason and Pierre Jalbert, into 152 episodes of war and the trials, tribulations, and tragedies experienced and suffered during it. The series was also chock full of plenty of guest stars throughout its run, such as Telly Savalas, Lee Marvin, James Colburn, Leonard Nimoy, Sal Mineo, John Cassavetes, and many, many others.
Each DVD has plenty of extras including photo galleries, bloopers, recent documentaries produced for the set about the production, and audio commentaries by many of the people involved, including some of the directors, who went on to greater success in cinema, such as Robert Altman (MASH, Nashville, The Player) , Richard Donner (Superman I and II, Lethal Weapon series, The Omen), Ted Post (Magnum Force) and plenty more.
A great deal for the aficionado of classic adventure TV series, Combat!: The Complete Series should surely not be overlooked.
