A couple of episodes were set near the Alps:crazy: just so they could put real life Olympic skier Pierre Jalbert (Caje) on skis......
Found this section on a Combat! fan site: http://www.jodavidsmeyer.com/combat/dogfacetales/index.htm. ,consisting of stories based on Combat! by Mary Wright. Not bad as amature episodes, but the writing is a hoot. The first one almost made me choke with laughter.
