Storyline

A German captain warns Saunders that "a reckless hunter who sets a trap often becomes its first victim" when Saunders uses him as bait to attract a deadly Nazi Colonel. The infantry NCO battles not only the wily captain, but a cynical, fellow Sergeant, on loan for his German capability. Sgt. Maider doubts Saunders' every move, needling Saunders that his improvisation risks their lives, especially their wounded medic, solely for his own glory. Written by David Stevens

Redemption for a Reckless Sergeant
29 October 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When Doc is wounded in a confrontation with Germans, Saunders, Caje and Sgt. Meider, who works in communication and speaks German, try to bring him back to the allied lines in the daylight. They stop at the barn of a farmhouse and put Doc to rest on the hay for a while. Soon a German patrol arrives at the farmhouse to prepare and observation post and the American group is trapped in the barn. When Saunders overhears that the German Colonel Von Stolzing, who was responsible for a massacre in a battle with allied, will inspect the post, he decides to stay to capture the notorious colonel despite the protest of Meider. Saunders, Caje and Meider subdue the enemies that surrender and Saunders asks Meider to inspect the basement since one German soldier is missing but the reckless sergeant drinks wine instead. While waiting for the colonel, the German soldier escapes and Saunders lives a dilemma with the situation since the colonel is taking too long to arrive and Doc is getting worse.

"Operation Fly Trap" is another episode of "Combat!", where Saunders is confronted by another sergeant. In this episode, he lives the dilemma between saving Doc that is wounded or rescue a powerful German colonel that will certainly help the allied forces wit his information. Communication Sgt. Meider is reckless but he has his moment of glory and redemption by the end of the episode capturing the German colonel alive. There are flaws but in general it is an engaging episode. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Operação Armadilha de Mosca" ("Operation Fly Trap")
