5.0 out of 5 stars The Patrol that Never was, 26 May 2011
This review is from: The Rat Patrol Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
The Rat Patrol is an American WW2 Adventure Series that is totally out of step with the true REAL - LIFE exploits of the men of the REAL British Desert Rat Patrols during the Second World War.
When the first and last episode was first shown and broadcasted upon BBC TV back in 1966 this TV Series caused an immediate up-roar with the REAL British Ex-Serving Veterians of the WW2 British Desert Rat Patrol's, with all future episodes of this TV Series than duly being fully cancelled.

However, if you view this TV Series simply as a make believe U.S. Army Unit somewhere in the Desert during WW2, and again simply enjoy what is a good guy- v- bad guy - American Unit that single handedly clobbers the Jerry's in this make believe Second World War Series with "ONLY ONE" of our 4 Heroe's being portrayed as a Real-Brit, then the Action in this TV Series is really quite good.

After only seeing the very first episode of this Two Seasons TV Series, we had to wait until the 1980's when this whole Series was finally then fully shown and aired upon Sky TV. So therefore, like me do enjoy this shot - em' - up, Old Glory flag waving American made WW2 make-believe kinda "alone" we won the War TV Series that is NOT Politically fully correct, as being a Gung - Ho' piece of U.S. once Prime - Time TV Hookie, and try not to read to much into the once Real - Life historical portrayed mistakes in this TV Series by taking WW2 British Desert Rats History to seriously, for as for the set pieces of Action in this TV Series it is worth a 5 Stars Rating for its Action and Adventure contents alone, if not otherwise by being somewhat out of step with the Real People of the Real British Rat Patrol, and their Life events.
