    That brings back Memories of Northampton St in the early seventies.

    I eventually bought the DVD set of the whole series. From black & white beginnings to color episodes.

    Like the Col said, "lots of famous people in this series". It has been a kick to see such big name (later in life) stars in bit parts on this show. Names like Lee Marvin, Robert Duval, Leonard Nimoy, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, etc. Geez, the list goes on! I bet that later they were proud to have been part of Combat!. They should have been anyway!

    Unfortunately, I only got to originally see enough of the show to hook me. I lost access to TV in 1964 (went overseas). Was only b&w then, but still couldn't get enough of it. A Great and very realistic production! (Especially compared to crap like Hogan's Heroes, Gomer Pyle USMC, etc.)

    Twelve O'clock High was another authentic one. The movie version was written by my dad's Squadron Commander, Col. Bernie Lay; and included many events of my dad's squadron and his missions in WW2.
    Definitely some poetic license came into play, and in fact Col Lay actually combined events from the 3 sqdns he flew with to make the one story line. But a big majority of the movie story is what actually happened in my dad's squadron; the 487th BS, 3rd BG, 8th AAF.
    Dad & Lay (& others) got shot down on the mission (11May44) that is the heart of the movie. Lay went down in France (& evaded to finally meet up w/ the USA at Normandy). Dad got his heavily damaged B-24 back across the channel to the coast of England. Lost the aircraft there but saved his whole crew. ...Only to be later shot down in a B-17 over Germany and was captured. He & his nose gunner were the only survivors that time (25Aug44). An 88mm took his wing off over Rechlin.

    I didn’t have one like this, but my Gma and mom did. I remember them making coffee in it. My mom gave me one when I moved out. I screwed up the coffee every damn time in that thing!

    To this day I think with fresh ground beans the coffee was better .

    You had to watch and get it off the heat or unplug if it was a fancy electric one just right
