The compendium is an armchair companion for viewing the classic television series Combat!, starring Vic Morrow as Sergeant Saunders. Combat!   was television's longest-running World War II drama and honored the frontline U.S. infantryman. Airing originally on ABC from 1962 through 1967, Combat! followed the exploits of the fighting men of Company K's second platoon as they battled their way across Europe. A critical and popular success, Combat! lives on in syndication, where it continues to attract new fans.

The book includes comments from Rick Jason, Dick Peabody, Tom Lowell, Pierre Jalbert, Conlan Carter, Jack Hogan, Robert Altman, Robert Blees, Georg Fenady, A.D. Flowers, and Earl Parker. The book has production notes, backstage stories, recollections of the actors, bloopers, reviews of all 152 episodes, and photos. A large section of photos of Combat! collectibles is also included.

The compendium is printed on high-quality paper, with a gloss color cover and over 150 photos throughout (both black-and-white and color). Softbound, 8-1/2 by 11 inches.

All books are autographed by author. If you want a personalized autograph, please indicate so on your order.

What Jack Hogan ("Kirby") says about the book:

"I just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying your book. I think it has a nice spirit to it, and that may be due to the over-view you were able to come up with. Combat was a series that got made in spite of itself, but it was a pleasurable growing experience for all of us. So many years ago when all that went down, yet the kids in us are still laughing and scratching, as always, and it is good to be remembered."
