Does anybody remember the TV series "Combat," which ran from 1962 to 1967? It starred Vic Morrow as Sgt. Saunders. My childhood mind will never forget Sgt. Saunders and his Thompson sub-machine gun. Does anyone remember him ever running out of ammo and having to change magazines? Wasn't TV amazing in that a German soldier firing an MG42 couldn't hit "the broadside of a barn," as my dad used to say, but an American GI with a 1911. 45 could take out an enemy soldier at 100 yards or so? No wonder we won the war.
