Combat! Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Combat! is an American television drama series that originally aired on ABC from 1962 until 1967. The exclamation point in Combat! was depicted on-screen as a stylized bayonet. The show covered the grim lives of a squad of American soldiers fighting the Germans in France during World War II.

Paul shares his opinion on tv.com, "It's not that Combat! was terrible or bad, but all its undergraduate psychologizing and treacly storylines grow old. I enjoyed it when it first aired, back in 1962, but I was seven years old, then. Nowadays, it irritates more than it satisfies. How so, some may ask: 1) The combat sequences. Not every single German soldier felt the need to run out in the middle of the road and stand still so as to give the enemy a perfect target. More, it is generally not possible for anyone to burp out a few rounds from a machine gun positioned on their hips and kill two or three people a couple of hundred yards ahead behind the trees. And, finally, there is more to military maneuvers than "flank'em, Kirby!" Anyone watching this show would think the US Army killed 10 or 20 Germans for every American killed. In fact, the Germans enjoyed a 3:2 advantage over the US Army in the kill ratio. 2) The preachiness. "Oh, the horrors of war". Over and over and over. Pedestrian, to say the least. And, if it's so "horrible", why were so many people watching the show? Hmmm? And why did the producers want people to watch? A little too much self-righteous hypocrisy for my taste. 3) Sgt. Saunders. I just couldn't ever stand Vic Morrow. Anyone who ever saw the other World War II combat series from about the same time, The Gallant Men, knows what a real sergeant looks like, with Richard X. Slattery's portrayal of Sgt. John McKenna. In fact, the entire cast, not to mention storylines, plots, and photography of The Gallant Men was superior to Combat! Americans suffered casualties in The Gallant Men. Lots of them. Not just an unfortunate "guest star" every other week."

Former Employee - Copier Tech says

"I worked at Combat Brands full-time for more than a year Cons: Very focused on short term gains and losses, with limited commitment to long-term improvements. No clear long-term plan."

CNC Operator (Former Employee) says

"Your either in the click or not. If your not, it will turn into a hostile work environment. If you disagree with management, they will find a way to get rid of you with no due process. Cons: The culture is toxic"

Gunsmith (Former Employee) says

"They don't follow the rules for workers rights , even when you're in the right , they'll side with who they're most fond of , the job is a great job , I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want to do it all their life , but if there's a disagreement , it's not what you know , it's who you know. Cons: People"

Custom Firearm Salesman (Former Employee) says

"You must be loyal to the company, although they will never be loyal to you. No room for advancement within the company. The firearms and the customers are great. That aspect was wonderful. The owner’s son has no idea how to run a great company. Wilson Combat has the potential to be one of the best small companies to ever work for, but fall short due to lack of quality leadership."

administrative assistant/ sales assistant (Former Employee) says

"Loved my job, worked hard to grow the accounts and do what was asked of me. Was unfairly let go because of what i knew. Loved the work hours and staying busy all the time. Cons: its a big click like high school"
