Storyline

In a flashback story told as the men rest on a rainy night, Sgt. Saunders recalls the experiences of himself and several other men on the day of the D-Day invasion, including tales about Braddock, who won the platoon pool for when the invasion would take place; Doc Walton, who was reluctant to go into battle; Caje (called "Caddie" in this episode), who is accompanied by another Cajun; and Lt. Hanley, who at the time was still a sergeant, and had little battle experience compared to Saunders. Following the landing, the men move inland and come upon a farmstead held by a squad of German infantry. Written by aldanoli

The D-Day Invasion
21 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

While resting in France, Sgt. Saunders and Lt. Hanley's platoon recalls the day that Braddock won a 800 dollar-pool and the mission they had to protect the paratroopers behind the enemy line after the disembark in France. They head to a farm in a small group and soon they learn that the paratroopers are prisoners of the Germans. Further, there is a tank protecting the farmhouse and they have few weapons and are short of ammunition. What will Hanley and Saunders and their team do to rescue the soldiers?

Recently it was released in Brazil a Box of the First Season of "Combat!" in Brazil with 16 episodes of this series. "A Day in June" is the first one and soon the user will realize that they are out of sequence. The menu is too loud, forcing the viewer to reduce the volume (or turn off the home-theater) to select the episode. The end of the episode "jumps" to the next one, instead of returning to the menu.

"A Day in June" is a full of action episode that uses flashback and great introduction of the main characters to the younger generation that has not had the chance to see this magnificent series in the 60's and to recall "Combat!" for the older viewers. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Um Dia em Junho" ("A Day in June")
